2010 Congressional Art Show

Two students, Hannah Lazerick and Jamie Cyr had work entered in this year's competition. We spent yesterday checking out the amazing work from all around the state at the T.W.Wood Art Gallery.
Congressman Welch speaking to the participants.

8th Grade World Mural

The 8th graders this trimester are working on a gigantic World Map out on the basketball court. Basically a big stencil, the map is created by connecting dots of paint and then filling in with colors. We hope to have it finished by the end
of school (as long as we don't have too many more "snow" days!)

Pictures are slightly out of order...This is the final stenciling day, before we start connecting the dots...

Making lots of dots.
Actually the first day of the project. We are working on top of an old outline of the United States. It was quite windy this day- hence the need for sitting on the stencil!
