With AP exams out of the way, eight Chatham High School senior art students are creating two unique photo opportunities for the Chatham Historical Society. These displays will be located at Railroad Plaza South during the Tricentennial celebration of Chatham held June 13, 2015 in conjunction with the annual Fishawack Festival.
The art students are creating two fun face-in-the-hole boards. As inspiration, the artists are using Victorian era photographs taken in Chatham. You won’t want to miss seeing these fabulous creations and encourage friends and family to try it out while you snap their photo!
Under the direction of AP Studio Art teacher Eric Hreha, seniors Hailey Brock, Melissa Danitz, Ingrid Hoernner, Austin Huffman, Christine Inzerillo, Catie Maguire, Taylor Maloney, and Laura Walsh have taken 5x7 black and white photographs and created life-size painted pictures upon pieces of plywood.
