One of the first things visitors to the Waterloo Central School District Offices notice upon their arrival is the student artwork that adorns the walls.
Each year Art Teachers Sarah Carey and Dana Carey select pieces from the “Best in Show” of the Spring Art Show to be put on display at District Office. About 70 pieces by more than 30 artists were chosen this year.
For the past two years, Superintendent of Schools Terri Bavis has invited students, their families and members of the Board of Education to a reception to view the artwork.
“I look forward to this event each year,” Bavis said. “The students brighten our walls every day and it is so nice to see them visit with their families and share some of the stories behind their work.”
Junior Madison Eipp had a piece selected and said that she enjoys Digital Photography because “there’s a thousand things you can do.”
Sophomore Tarynn Tamm spent a couple of months working on a charcoal and graphite piece she titled “Stop the World”
“I am much more comfortable with landscapes than portraits,” Tamm said. “I thought that putting a landscape behind it would be better, and it was.”
Senior Christian Lopez used pencils to create a shading effect for his work that was selected.
“I was so proud of that piece when I made it,” Lopez said. “It came out super well.”
The pieces will remain on display throughout the school year.
