New View: Interpretations of The Cummer Gardens
Through October 1, 2011

Visual art students at Douglas Anderson School of the Arts were encouraged to create interpretations - or new views - of works of art and the natural landscape. The project began by visiting The Cummer where students were inspired to draw in the garden. In the galleries, they were challenged by the concepts of abstract paintings of William Kienbusch, Karl Knaths, Romare Bearden, Abraham Rattner, and J. Phillip Hultberg in The Cummer's permanent collection.
The garden drawings created by these ninth graders were then taken back to the school's studio, where the students further developed them into finished drawings in a realistic and recognizable manner. Students then selected one or two of the art elements (line, shape, form, space, value, color, texture) to emphasize in a three part drawing progression - moving from realism to abstraction - resulting in beautifully diverse renditions of the natural environment.
Members Free, Non-Members $10
