“What I love about art is that anything is possible. Bees can be PINK. Trees can be PURPLE. It’s like taking the world as it is and then swirling it around to show how it could be.” (A Handful of Stars, pg 151)
Inspired by this powerful quote from A Handful of Stars by Cynthia Lord, Lower School’s 2018 summer reading book, students in grades one through five collaborated to create a “beeutiful” artistic installation entitled “Colony of Curiosity.” Unlike a mural or mosaic, which is one large piece of artwork, an artistic installation brings together many individual art projects that when placed together transform a space into a work of art.
We felt that these very original “beedazzled” bees served as an appropriate metaphor for our school, which is made up of many unique and creative individuals who, like a colony of bees, work together towards a common goal. As you view our artwork installation set up by some of our generous parent volunteers, enjoy listening to the buzz of activity as our busy little worker bees strive to learn new and exciting things guided by their curiosity!
