— On May 9, art students in the Art For The School And Beyond class at Lenape Valley Regional High School conducted a puppet show on famous artists for first grade students at the Valley Road Elementary School.

The puppet show is an annual, collaborative project between elementary school art teacher Sara O’Neill and high school art teacher Sherry Carnegie.

During this school year, Carnegie’s art students worked on producing paper mache puppets, puppet show stages, as well as written scripts and visuals, that focused on a particular famous artist such as Claude Monet, Vincent VanGogh, Piet Mondrian, Andy Warhol and Pablo Picasso.

The Valley Road first graders were given an opportunity to view five different puppet shows on each of the famous artists created by the high school art students.

After seeing the puppet shows, the first graders were engaged in a hands-on art project. This project required them to create a crayon drawing influenced by one of the famous artist’s styles that they had learned about during the puppet shows.

The teachers love the collaborative project because it benefits both the elementary and high school students.

The elementary school students benefit by gaining knowledge about famous artists from art history, while the high school students benefit through teaching the younger kids about these artists.

The focus of the Lenape Valley Art for the School and Beyond course is to benefit others in some way through the creation of various art projects for this service art class.
