Louise Nevelson Sculptures

Multi-agers and second-graders learned about the fascinating sculptures of Louise Nevelson while making their own in her style. Louise emigrated to Maine from Russia when she was three years old, and was fascinated with creating things and making art her whole life. When she became a teenager, she moved to New York and started creating sculptures out of trash, which led to her life work.  Her sculptures are sometimes monumentally big, and sometimes small, but they are intricate and always one color.  We learned that painting them one color helps you look at the whole piece, rather than pointing out each individual bit.
