RSU 14 shows off its artsy-side by Michelle Libby

RSU 14 is known for its athletics, but it is also known for its arts program

headlined by the Windham Chamber Singers and third grade chorus. It is also know for an annual art show at Windham High School, which shows off the full spectrum of artistic talent from kindergarten to high school.

Art teachers Christina Warren (WPS/JSMS), Allison Livengood (WMS), Deborah Livengood (WMS), Kim Chasse (WHS), Becky Wright (WPS), Jeff Bell (WHS), Colleen Kearney-Graffam (WHS), Kirsten Hackett (RES) and Angelika Blanchard (Manchester), were in attendance for opening night Monday.

“My favorite part is seeing the culmination of the whole thing K to 12,” said Deborah Livengood.

“Everything comes together like a puzzle. It’s incredible,” said Blanchard. “It’s the art and music coming together that’s special.” The students get the chance to tour the art show during the week and it was open in the evenings for parents to view.

Windham High School principal Chris Howell, welcomed the crowd and thanked them for their support of the arts. The Windham Chamber Singers and the third grade chorus preformed.
