Sandown North Elementary School had a wonderful opportunity to work with famous artist, Rob Surette. Rob is a local artist from Andover, Massachusetts and has worked with many famous actors and actresses painting their portraits. He is also in the Guinness book of world records and just recently won the grand prize for creating a Portrait made up of 1,000 gumballs of Taylor Swift from Ripley’s Believe it or Not.
In October, Rob worked with the children at Sandown Elementary School for a 3 day Artist in Residence program. He created a piece of artwork using over 23,000 Crayons. What was exciting about this crayon project was the kids had the opportunity to make something but they did not know what the finished piece would be. This was a team effort and the students all had a part in creating the beautiful piece of artwork. Photos courtesy Dean Zanello
