We will be holding opening night of the Brookside Museum 6th Grade Student Art Show, “Artists Are Inspired By Their Community” . Artists can be inspired by the place they live. Grade 6 students are to explore a historic landmark in the Village of Ballston Spa and make their expressive painting. The students are introduced to works by French Fauvists as a resource for color exploration. Using research collected, notes from our Brookside Museum Presentation, peer review, student observations of their chosen resource and applying Math Ratios for color mixing, students create an original work based on their community.
Also on display, Invented in Saratoga County, which shares the inspired inventions that came out of Saratoga County and shaped local industry and national historic events.
