Febuary 2015 - Students of a local school
This month we will be featuring art made by students of the North Salem Nursery School. See the drawings of rainbows, animals, and families as depicted through the creative lens of young children. The drawings are bright, colorful, and have a jubilant air to them.
Next Month - Kindergarden Mondrian
These paintings were created based on the artwork done my Piet Mondrian. The Kindergarden students used horizontal, vertical, and diaginal lines to create shapes while learing about the three primary colors: red, yellow, and blue.

Bryan Lee Madden's Etch a Sketch Artwork
Bryan Madden grew up in Purdys New York. He attended college in Plattsburgh where he discovered a talent for Etch A Sketch. His etches have achieved Internet fame and media attention and been featured on CBS News, CNBC, and in The Wall Street Journal.
He takes commissions of people, homes and businesses in addition to traveling the country to sketch portraits at weddings, corporate events and parties. All his art is preserved by removing the sand contained within (so as to prevent shaking/erasing) and he has shipped many across country including one hanging in Portland in The Children's Museum of Maine.
