Third, fourth and fifth grade students at the State Street School in Skaneateles are at it again!
In December 2010, students from the school visited Crouse with their parents and art teacher Susan Barry as the work they'd been creating in class was unveiled, each piece matted and framed. The youngsters beamed as they saw their individual art works grouped in an exhibit in a main Crouse Hospital corridor (photo below).
Recently a new group of students from these grades came to Crouse for a reception celebrating the second exhibit they worked on this fall, pictured here in the Crouse Hospital Library with Crouse President and CEO Paul Kronenberg, MD, and Barry (back row). The first exhibit has been taken down and the new exhibit is mounted and ready for viewing in a main corridor near the hospital lobby.
“The students are so excited about their art and being able to share it with patients, families and staff," said Barry about the project. "We hope that the art our students created will be a source of joy, peace and healing.”
Students who participated in the art project were:
3rd grade: Trent Porter, Frank DeRosalia, McKenna Len, Joe Norris, Nicholas Galbato, Maggie Newton, Lexie Cottrill, Tatumn Pascal, Sofia Ramos, Erin Guthrie
4th grade: Daniella Erbes, Thomas Coyne, Hope Azzam, Ava Blackwell, Jane Gutchess, Riley Brogan, Gaby Welch, Tessa Peterson, Maeve Canty, Lani Byrne
5th grade: McKinley Abernathy, Jack Carlile, Victoria Parenti, Nicholas Paciorek, Sarah Euto, Eline Kroon, Ivy Carter, Patrick Hackler, Katie Olsen, Nicole DeRosa
Crouse wishes to thank the students for sharing their creations; Ms. Barry for her artistic leadership these past two years; her parents Rosemarie and Bill Cazzola, who helped with the matting and framing of the art works (Bill is a member of the volunteer corps at Crouse); our Engineering Department team members; and the members of our Healing Environment Arts Committee for coordinating the project.
