Londonderry elementary students: The nature of learning through art
Robinson, a Moultonborough resident and member of the state Council on the Arts' Resident Artist Program, is spending time enjoying the sunshine and students all this week as part of the traveling program.
Fully funded through grants by the state Council on the Arts, the program has been a fixture at South School for the past decade. Previous artists have included tile designers, weavers, painters, poets, folk singers and landscape artists.
"It will be one, great big 'communi-tree'," Robinson said with a laugh.
Each notebook has spaces for the youngsters to sketch scenes from the school's outdoor garden and courtyard area, while jotting down their thoughts, poems and prose.
"It's based on the idea of making connections to the natural environment that we're all a part of," she said. "So it's art with a message."
It's a message that's easily translated to students of all ages, from preschoolers to senior citizens.
Connors said students look forward to working with real-life artists each year, and fundraising efforts in the school community help match the state grant funds to keep the program going.
