FAIR HAVEN YOUNG ARTISTS A HIT

Press release from Fair Haven School District

“Make Your Mark” was the theme of the Fair Haven School District Art Show, with more than 1,000 pieces of student-created original art displayed at Knollwood School on the evening of April 14.

This year’s edition of the annual show represented the District’s implementation of new standards in the visual arts.  The new standards focus on essential questions to help develop both critical thinking and problem-solving skills, with students are encouraged to create, present, respond, and connect their artwork to ideas that have personal meaning.

Kindergarten through third grade students at Viola L. Sickles School, and fourth through eighth grade students at Knollwood School each contributed at least one project for display.

Featured at the Art Show this year was a “wheel” utilized by Knollwood School students to create ceramic pieces. The wheel was acquired as the result of a grant requested by and awarded to the Knollwood School Art Teachers by the Fair Haven Parent Teacher Association. The wheel was showcased in the Knollwood School All-Purpose Room, along with many ceramic items resulting from its use. Also on display were a variety of colorful and compelling drawings and paintings, as well as sculptures made of paper, wood, and clay.

“The art show is a great way to celebrate student talents and diverse ideas,” said Knollwood School Art Teacher Kelly Fogas. “The displayed works and items created throughout the year show the growth of artistic ability, conceptualization, and eagerness in our students.”

Fair Haven School District Art Teachers are Dr. RoseAnn LaBrocca (K-3, Viola L. Sickles School), Kelly Fogas (4-8, Knollwood School), and Chris Dudick (5th and 8th, Knollwood School). Art Show Coordinators were Stephanie Bates and Marisa Coar.
