New Hyde Park’s Board Games and Art

Classic children’s board games are being used as the subject for an acrylic painting assignment in Danielle Livoti’s Drawing and Painting classes at New Hyde Park Memorial.

The students recently worked together to set the stage for their projects, using colorful game pieces from games such as Sorry! and Mouse Trap. They arranged the pieces and then held a light source and camera at different angles to capture the ideal perspective of their composition. After agreeing on the artistic vision they sought, a classmate photographed their concept for Livoti’s approval. Upon approval, the students began sketching their concept on paper, which will ultimately serve as the inspiration for their painting.
