2017 Art Day at The Watermill Center

Art Day at the Watermill Center

Creative collaborations with Springs Elementary School
at  The Watermill Center

Sixty students rotated among a panoply of art workshops presented by a team of creative professionals and educators. The unique and inspiring Watermill Center – a laboratory of performance, galleries and grounds – was the perfect creative venue for the 6th Graders. Students took photographs, wrote poems, sketched in nature, shot video, recorded music, made sculptures, wove friendship bracelets and performed Maori poi dances. Then they had lunch!
