The Andover Coalition for Education has announced its funding of two K-12 fine arts projects, one to help better display students’ artistic creations, and the other to support a visiting artist program.
The school administration established a Fine Arts Task Force this year and its goal “is to bring more recognition to the wonderful talent of our students….. and to invite the community to enjoy and appreciate their creativity,” according to a release from ACE.
ACE will fund new hanging systems in all 10 schools as well as public spaces, such as the Collins Center and the Central Administration building. The hanging system will allow student art work to be displayed in a professional manner and will also provide flexibility for the installation, according to Meghan Michaud, lead fine arts teacher and Nancy Duclos, assistant superintendent. “The community takes pride in the work of our students and this manner of presentation will enhance that experience,” according to the release.
