Malletts Bay School Artwork Art Heads Downtown

Artwork from Malletts Bay School’s fifth graders is on display on Church Street in Burlington.

Fifth-grade artists in Jennifer Jacobson’s art class collaboratively painted food-inspired banners to promote healthy and local eating. Ms. Jacobson selected two of these colorful banners for display at Kiss the Cook (www.kissthecook.net/). Marie Bouffard, owner of the store, and her staff arranged the colorful banners in the storefront for all of those on Church Street to view.

Jacobson comments, “I think it is great to not only promote the arts in Colchester but to branch out into the larger community. Church Street receives a lot of traffic this time of year, and people will recognize their hard work and creativity that went into the making of these wonderful pieces. I am also excited that they will be on display during the KeyBank Vermont City Marathon (www.vermontcitymarathon.org/page.php?pid=1&pname=home).”

Banners will be on display at Kiss the Cook through the month of May. The banners will be on permanent display in the Malletts Bay School cafeteria.
