Carrie Ricker Arts Teacher Creates Virtual Arts Show to Showcase Student Work

This school year has been anything but typical, forcing teachers and students to teach and learn in new ways. As schools across the globe transitioned from classroom instruction to remote learning it was important to Jen Williams, the Visual Arts Teacher at Carrie Ricker School in Litchfield to keep her artists engaged and creating.

Normally, Williams and her colleagues would have had a large Arts Night at school filled with an art show and spring concerts. Since that could not happen this year, she decided to create a video art show to celebrate her student’s amazing artwork. This video art show showcases not only their art created at school but during remote learning.

“My hope is that with this art show my students feel proud of their accomplishments and celebrated for their talents,” said Williams.  “The arts are such a vital part of education and have kept us all connected through these challenging times.”
