The SLIP (Stories of the Land and Its People) exhibit opening at the Farnsworth this past weekend showcased the hard work and beautiful artwork and photography of our fourth- and seventh-graders. There was a presentation at the Strand Theater which recognized the many key participants in the program as well as highlighting the important aspects this project contributes to our students’ understanding and education. In addition to Appleton students, work from Hope, Lincolnville, Isleboro, and Rockland students is on display as well. It is a great example of the collaborative work that the Farnsworth has facilitated to integrate art into classroom subjects. The different approach taken along with the unique perspectives of students made for a great exhibit. The exhibit is primarily located in Julia’s Gallery but there are also several photographs/art pieces at the Craig Gallery in the Farnsworth. The exhibit will be up for the summer, so if you get a chance it is definitely worthwhile to check out.
There are lots of fun and educational field trips planned for the kids in the final weeks of school. There will be trips to Augusta to the State Museum and Fort Western, Isleboro, Pemaquid Beach and Lighthouse, Hope Elephants, Portland, and I am sure more that I am forgetting. What a great opportunity for the kids to go on trips like these! This past week the eighth-graders went on their trip on the Mary Day schooner. They sailed around the coast of Maine for a few days! What a great thing for the eighth-graders to do! They may never have a chance to do something like that again.
