Sachem art teachers Alexis Curcio and Renee Parisi recently represented student-artists from Tamarac Elementary School and Sagamore Middle School at the Suffolk County Art Leaders Association’s Children’s Show on March 16 at Old Town Hall in Babylon.

The exhibit featured a mixed collection of two-dimensional and three-dimensional art from students across Suffolk County in grades K-8. The fourth-grade art that was featured from Tamarac Elementary School included poured landscape reflections inspired by Australian artist Kate Shaw and Native American-inspired spirit animal paintings representing animals students felt connected to. Additionally, Tamarac third-grade artists created Chinese porcelain plates inspired by their recent study of China. 

Students from Sagamore Middle School created two-dimensional pieces as part of their acrylic color study in which students used the grid method to render their portraits to a larger size. They then chose a color scheme and applied different shades and tints of that color to their face, filling the background with a complementary color. In other incredible displays of art, students made observation drawings, name-design projects and a transformation diptych. In addition, Sagamore students also created three-dimensional sculptures representing something manmade and something found in nature.
