5th and 6th graders from Gabriel Abbot Memorial School in Florida, MA with their under-the-sea menagerie
We kicked off this year’s artist residency program today with artist James Grashow, whose Under the Corrugated Sea installation has been a huge hit in our current exhibition! During the residency, Grashow is working with 5th-7th graders at five local elementary schools to help them create their own cardboard fish (he calls them the “rarest creature in the ocean!”). Students partnered up to design tails and fins (and in some cases, top hats and ballet slippers) for their fish and then used paint to apply the final touches.
Participants will then have the opportunity to show off their fish during the Under the Sea Parade on February 11th.
Stay tuned for more about the Mermaid Parade and next week’s artist-in-residency with Ginger Ertz!
