A Different Kind of School Year

In a normal year the WAAM Education Program has a number of long term in school residencies where we create work that is shown in the YES Gallery. This year due to the pandemic we had none. It was still very important to us that we share work created in the schools by talented local students with the support of wonderful teachers.

This month, we had an open invitation for students from Bennett Elementary School to contribute work to an all school group show.  In such a challenging year where students were learning in school and at home, some with limited technology and materials, were still learning and creating wonderful art. We are so happy to be able to share some of this amazing work in this most challenging year.

Thank you to Roberta Ziemba, Bennett Elementary Art Teacher for helping us make this happen.
