Weare students pay homage to town's history — artistically

Inspired by Weare's upcoming 250th anniversary, Van Saun, a mosaic artist, worked with more than 450 students to create the six large panels. The mosaics feature historical landmarks, reflect the town's agricultural history and explore the range of products once made in local factories.
At the end of last year, students led by Van Saun created drawings from photographs loaned to them by the historical society and created the templates for the mosaics.
"All of these mosaics were completed in a week, and all of our students participated," said Willis. "As you can imagine, it was a very busy, creative week of learning fun."
