This is the blog for the Waitsfield Elementary School Art Program in Waitsfield Vermont. This site is maintained by Nora McDonough. It contains photographs and information about past and current art projects completed at all levels, K-6.
The kiln has been doing “overtime” this past week as artist-in- residence potter Leslie Montalto takes our students’ creations through the glazing and finishing process. Stop by the art room to check out the beautiful finished products. Most students have produced both a slab bowl and a bowl on the wheel. Students will take one bowl home and their second creation will be sold to raise funds to fight hunger in Vermont at our “Empty Bowls” dinner next Tuesday, April 13th, 5:30– 7:00 at Sugarbush Gate House. We hope you will join us for this culminating event celebrating art and our community caring for one another. Tickets are available at school or through your child. We ask that everyone purchase their ticket in advance so that we can have a “head count” and insure that everyone wishing to purchase a specific bowl has the opportunity to do so.
