After much preliminary planning, on the big day, 10 students spent from noon until 6 p.m. creating their 8-foot-by-8-foot artwork on the cement floor of the skating rink.
“They worked beautifully together,” wrote Diana Baxter, art educator at Barrington High School and the art club advisor. “It was a true team effort, and they were thrilled to be recognized for their efforts. They also got to meet Providence Mayor Angel Tavares!”
Barrington High School junior Ava Randall-Matzko designed the artwork for the street painting. BHS art club members selected her work for the festival.
The team won $100 with the second place finish.
