In Youth and Beauty

I bought two pieces of art to hang from my son’s elementary school. I loved them immediately. The abstract tiles where done by my son’s 3rd and 4th grade class. The tree was made by a 1st and 2nd grade class. Both pieces of art are really lovely. The tree has a cool property, like a scene in Ferris Bueller. The art changes its character from far away to as close anyone would care to get. First, the tiles of abstract images of persons and animals was made under the rule that the student not pick up the pen during the drawing and then there are rules for filling with color, like a graph coloring rule.

The other artwork is a sort of mosaic of paper circles colored and glued to a black foam core board. The tree shots zoom in with three steps doubling the zoom at each step.
