Hi joey- Wanted to share some good things happening in the Gloucester Public Schools. Local artists are visiting every school in the district to do amazing hands-on art projects with kids. The Artistic Bridges program is funded by Gloucester Education Foundation and coordinated by Cape Ann Museum. Kids are getting to learn about what it’s like to be a professional artist, and schools are connecting with the artistic community in a great new way. And everyone’s having FUN!
Painter Loren Doucette is working with West Parish second graders to create the “ABC’s of Gloucester.” The students are drawing Gloucester landmarks beginning with every letter of the alphabet that will be pulled together to make a collaborative art piece. Can’t wait to see it!
Collage Artist Hans Pundt is working with East Gloucester students to create personal collages. The kids are collecting objects and pictures that represent themselves and their heritage to make self portrait collages.
Sculptor Andy Cunningham visited Plum Cove Elementary to show how Gloucester granite can be turned into beautiful artwork.

Aria McElhenny submits this thank you from Next Step-
Great event at the Farm last weekend – Craig’s 2013 dodgeball movie is incredible! Wanted to share this link so the dodgeballers who missed the event could see how thankful all of us at Next Step are for their hard work at the tourney.
Thought you guys and the 2012 tournament participants might like a reminder of how their hard work raising funds at the tourney had an amazing impact on teens with cancer. The video below is from our summer youth conference for teen cancer survivors. These youth spent four days together learning how to manage their disease, laughing, riding a zip line and sharing their stories. The music in the video is an original song written by the youth and recorded at the conference.
Way to go dodge-ballers, you changed a lot of lives this year.
