Art CAN Make A Difference

Carlton students had the great honor of participating in the Salem Public Schools' "Art CAN Make An Impression" show, held at the Peabody Essex Museum. This show was a collaborative effort between all of the Salem elementary schools. Students all across the city learned about the great Impressionist painters and how their work and innovative style changed the art world forever. There was beautiful artwork to see, fun family activities, and all proceeds from the event went to help the Harvest of Hope Food Pantry here in Salem.

Day of the Dead

After the excitement of the Haunted Happenings Parade died down, students began exploring the cultural celebration of Dia de Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. While the name might sound a little scary, this celebration is held in Mexico and other Central and Southern American countries to remember and honor family members and loved ones who have passed away. It is a bright and colorful scene, with beautiful decorations and lots of flowers, not meant to be scary at all. Students created sugar skull masks and sculptures with traditional designs as well as "papel picado" cut paper decorations.        - Mrs. Bouffard, Art
