New London – The Lyman Allyn Art Museum is proud to present a special exhibition by the students of the Nathan Hale Arts Magnet School. In recent years, the Lyman Allyn has set aside a spot in its exhibition schedule, providing Nathan Hale students with an opportunity to display their artwork in a museum. The exhibit opens on Saturday, May 9 and remains on view through Sunday, June 7, 2015.
Students, parents, teachers, families, and art enthusiasts of all ages are invited to explore artwork created by students, grades K-5. Two-and three-dimensional artworks, in a variety of media, are included in the exhibit. A visual delight, this exhibit showcases student talent, creativity, and critical thinking.
Thanks to Jeffrey Wolfson, Nathan Hale Arts Teacher, Katherine Fioravanti, District Arts Supervisor, and Leslie Johnson, HOTS School Master Teaching Artist, who all contributed to developing the Nathan Hale students to their fullest artistic and academic potential. Come see the great artwork they’ve done! The Lyman Allyn Art Museum is always free to New London residents.
