On May 28th the Coastal Arts Guild of CT is partnering with Stratford’s Lordship Elementary School to host a daylong art field day called “Celebrate! Art” for the 270 students.
Students will get the chance to wear paint clothes and go hands-on with paint, fiber, masks and more, along with enjoying drumming and dance sessions.
To help get the kids in the mood, Lordship art teacher Jenny Cooper invited students to submit designs for mini sketchpads that will be given to the students the day of the event (provided kindly by Sketch for Schools).
Mrs. Cooper said the choice was difficult but she selected 4th grader Paige Mamone’s design for the front of the sketchbook.
When we visited the school and showed Paige the book, her reaction was priceless!
Thanks to all of the artists who are setting aside time for this great day. We are all looking forward to it!
