Magnificent Mugs benefit scholarship fund
Each year, the art department creates wonderful, useful pieces of art, for sale to the public to help raise money for LHS Art Dept. scholarships. Bestowed annually, the scholarships are given to deserving seniors who excel in fine arts, graphic arts and/or photography.
This year's offerings are beautiful hand-painted travel mugs, each custom designed and painted by an LHS art student. While some artists choose to purchase their mugs, which sell for $15 each, approximately 16 were available to the public.
If you would like to purchase one, there may still be a few left - for more information, contact LHS Art Teacher Jennifer Bull or Kathy Lambert (phone: 845-292-5400 or email: email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org)
LES artists create custom signs for the LES Edible Garden
LES Art Teacher Tracie Euker's students have been busily painting custom signs for the LES edible garden, located near the back exit of the elementary school, near School St.
The artists have given up their recess period to come to Ms. Euker's class to create their signs, which will be placed throughout the raised beds of the garden.
Each grade level is responsible for different areas of the garden, and will tend their plots until school is out. Over the summer, a group of volunteers will continue care of the beds and harvest vegetables as they come into season.
The garden gives students the chance to understand where and how food is produced and the many steps it takes to grow vegetables. For the fourth grade class, who are responsible for the squash, pumpkins and other hearty, late-season produce, it is a chance to connect the garden to history as they learn about colonial America, Thanksgiving traditions and the role of Native Americans in early American history.
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THE ARTS IN OUR SCHOOLS!
