Art Walk: Meet Peter Small Through His Sculptures

on October 3, 2020 By CJ Spirito | art show public event
  Peter Small was a prolific sculptor and produced hundreds of pieces throughout his life. He began working with clay in the 1980s, and the human head was his most constant subject. He enjoyed experimenting and perfecting new techniques, such as the "ribbon" technique (in some of the sculptures above), which involved creating delicate patterns with "ribbons" of clay to form a more significant structure. Peter passed away in 2013, and about 20 of his sculptures found a new home at RPS.  We are very grateful to have these art pieces on our land and are excited to share them with others.  We hope you will join us for an Art Walk to learn more about Peter and his work.   When: Saturday, October 10, 2020 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Where: Rock Point School, Burlington, VT

You can't spell "Heart" without ART!

on May 12, 2017 By Molly Huddle Coffey | art show
Our May 5th Art Show was a huge success and a ton of fun!  Art teacher, Jean Waltz, worked her usual magic to plan and execute the show, while teaching the students the executive functioning skills necessary for planning an event. Josh, a sophomore, took on a lot of the kitchen prep, while other students helped to hang the show. Several local artists donated pieces, including Lawrence Ribbecke who worked with Kathryn, a junior, to create a large stained glass piece for the show. Susan Stewart donated a beautiful textile piece made with water color fabric and Sheila Sprague donated several paintings, including one of Lone Rock Point.

Art + Student Leadership = An Art Show

on May 30, 2016 By Emily Skoler | art show
Rock Point School held its 16th annual art show,The Road Less Traveled this month at the Rose Street Gallery, with an opening night filled with guests, student artists, members of the Rock Point School community, food, musical entertainment, and a “kids’ corner” where children could make art. With the help of art instructor Jeannie Waltz, the senior class put on the entire show––from advertising, collecting artist statements from fellow students, hanging the show, preparing the food, arranging entertainment for the opening, recording sales, and, ultimately, taking down the show. Students prepared the entire 2015-2016 school year for this event, creating works of art out of media such as watercolor, acrylic, pen and ink, stained glass, photography, and more.
