Greenwich Public Schools Student Art Show Draws Crowds to Havemeyer

In a sure sign of spring, the annual Greenwich Public Schools Student Art Exhibition packed the Havemeyer Building on Wednesday evening. With about 10 artists from each of the 11 elementary schools, roughly 15 from each of the middle schools and about 70 from GHS students, there was much to admire.

Admiring Julian Curtiss fifth graders’ artwork. The students planned and created Doodle Motif Vessesl using a modified coiling method and carving. Student created a character and used that character as an inspiration to design a motif for the piece. Using loop tools, toothpicks and other carving tools students carved away the negative space to leave their design in relief. The color of underglaze used makes a personal connection to their idea.
