Using markers, Popsicle sticks and LEGOs, students at Hindley Elementary School created fantastical amusement rides as part of a recent art show.
There were roller coasters, Ferris wheels, and even entire carnivals on display for this year’s Hindley Creations Art Show. More than 30 students participated in the event, which was co-ordinated by Hindley PTO members Selena Chen and Christine Harris.
“The Creations Art Show has great value for students. It provides an opportunity for students to show off their creative abilities around choosing a design, and a medium with which to work. Projects such as this continue to fuel students’ passion for the arts,” said Hindley Principal DJ Colella.
The theme for the art show this year was “Amazing Amusements”. The rules were simple — match the theme to the creation. Students who participated worked on their projects at home and then showcased them in the school’s common room. Some of the creations are now on display at Darien Library.
Each student was given a ribbon for participating.
