This fall, the Peekskill High School Art Department hosted a trip to the New York Botanical Gardens. Roughly 20 to 30 students joined PHS faculty members, Mrs. Tabone, Mrs. Brown, Ms. Marone and Ms. Bean along this trip.

The trip was made up of all of the advanced art students of both Mrs. Tabone’s and Mrs. Brown’s classes. The trip’s main purpose was to see the Dale Chihuly exhibit. Dale Chihuly is an American glass sculptor, whose works consists mainly of brightly colored, nature-theme pieces. Featured in the exhibit were more than 20 different installations, which were scattered throughout the Gardens.

Our students, after visiting the exhibit, created pieces to mimic those of Chihuly. Instead of using glass, the students used plastic to make their artistic molds. Each student was allowed to create one warm-colored piece–variations of red, yellow, and orange, and one cool-colored piece–variations of blue, green, and purple.

These pieces will be showcased on the third level of the school, in the art department, as a permanent installation. They are expected to be displayed in January after the holiday break.
