Good news in Gloucester Schools From Aria McElhenny

Hi joey-
Wanted to share some good things happening in the Gloucester Public Schools. Local artists are visiting every school in the district to do amazing hands-on art projects with kids. The Artistic Bridges program is funded by Gloucester Education Foundation and coordinated by Cape Ann Museum. Kids are getting to learn about what it’s like to be a professional artist, and schools are connecting with the artistic community in a great new way. And everyone’s having FUN!

Painter Loren Doucette is working with West Parish second graders to create the “ABC’s of Gloucester.” The students are drawing Gloucester landmarks beginning with every letter of the alphabet that will be pulled together to make a collaborative art piece. Can’t wait to see it!

Collage Artist Hans Pundt is working with East Gloucester students to create personal collages. The kids are collecting objects and pictures that represent themselves and their heritage to make self portrait collages.
