Children’s art show at Valerie’s Gallery
The Newburyport shop Valerie’s Gallery is hosting a special art show through Sunday. The 30 pieces were created by students in kindergarten through third grade at Newburyport Montessori School and Inn Street Montessori School.
Kindergarten students at Newburyport Montessori School were inspired to create the artwork in their “Spilt Milk” project by scenes from the book, “It Looked Like Spilt Milk” by Charles G. Shaw.
“Kindergarten students blew white and gray paint through a straw into their desired shape,” shop owner Valerie Stanton wrote in an email. “They learned about color mixing and paint flow.”
There is a total of four different art projects displayed in the shop. The other three projects, created by students in the Lower Elementary School at the Inn Street Montessori School, include “Cave Paintings,” “Matisse Cut-Outs” and “Eat Cake!”
