In the News -- City, Suburban Kids Get Creative Together



WATERTOWN – Waterbury elementary students are working with students from a Watertown private high school to create a collaborative art project.

Just under 100 kindergarten through fifth-graders each made a leaf. The Taft School students will assemble them into a tree representing each class at the elementary school, according to Lynn Curless, Director of Development at Children’s Community School.

The students will showcase their work at an art show on Jan. 26 in Taft’s choral room.

“It ends up being a project that represents each individual student, but then puts them all together as a whole,” Curless said. “It becomes kind of a mystery to us until we see it unveiled again at this show.”   Read more...
