'Together We Have Wings': Art project opens school year

The school year took flight at Santa Catalina Lower and Middle School with a collaborative art project by students in kindergarten to Grade 8.

The students decorated paper feathers that were then fitted together to make a giant pair of rainbow-colored wings. The final piece, which fills the wall behind the stage in the Assembly Room, is titled “Together We Have Wings,” a reference to this year’s theme of togetherness.

Art teacher Frances Verga-Lagier Cook '99 was inspired by the work of street artist Kelsey Montague, whose #WhatLiftsYou campaign encourages people to take photos and interact with her large wing murals. Likewise, students are able to take photos in front of their own pair of wings.
