Art project

TO THE EDITOR: The Northern Adirondack Elementary children were very fortunate to have an author/illustrator in house five days over two weeks.

The children worked alongside Amy Guglielmo while creating art with a touch element.

This project was made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts.

I applaud Amy’s effort for traveling to Ellenburg each of the five days to share her passion, personality and expertise with the children. We have heightened the children’s interest in books, art history and art.

As the school partner/representative, I want to thank the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts and Mountain Lake PBS for working together to share word of the grant’s availability.

I also want to thank the Northern Adirondack Parent Teacher Organization for their financial support toward a portion of our required matching funds. I cannot forget to mention the cooperation of the Northern Adirondack Teachers, faculty and staff. As usual, everyone worked together to ensure success.

Again, thank you to everyone involved. It was an exciting project.
