Public Art Event – December 2013

On December 2, students from Rotella Interdistrict Magnet School went on our now “annual” field trip to downtown Waterbury to City Hall and the Chase Building. We decorated the trees with seasonal ornaments made during visual arts classes. First grade students worked on decoupage ornaments with seasonal or holdiday pictures. Second grade students worked on snowmen. Some created ceramic snowmen and others were made from celluclay. We used the ceramic snowflakes from last year to decorate a winter tree this year, because the tree was so beautiful the previous year.

After the students finished decorating, they were given hot cocoa and donuts. All enjoyed! Mayor O’Leary stopped in to thank the students and have his picture taken with them. He also surprised the students by telling them that he would visit them possibly in January and have a pizza party!

Students that participated: Jaime, Jeremiah, Lidia, Hailey, Alexandra, Sarah, Nicholas, Cierra, Sadie, Michael, Annalee, Julia, Thomasina, Matthew, Nathan, Milina, Sarah, Malik, Antonio, Saba, Kasey, Lia, Jasias, Jared, Tiffany

A Special Visit

 

 

 

It all began with the Public Art Event/ December 2012 (Post on Blog). Students created ceramic ornaments and went on a field trip to decorate trees at the Chase Building and City Hall. Mayor O’Leary came to our school to thank the students and present them with certificates. He spoke with the students about being kind to the elderly and helping keep our community clean by picking up trash. A couple of weeks passed and Mrs. Beaton mentioned to me that Matthew had been picking up trash after Mayor O’Leary’s visit. When I went to pick up the ornaments, by chance, I spoke with Mayor O’Leary and told him how the students were thrilled by his visit and that one student had been picking up trash. Mayor O’Leary said that he would like to present Matthew with a special citation…
