These 2nd graders are commisioned artists for the city of Ansonia...
Ok, well they may not be professional artists...but they are working on an art project for their school and city. And they are excited! These students are decorating glass tigers...art teacher Chrissy Cox received donations from local businesses to buy the tigers and the kindergarten class through
4th grade are decorating them.
The really cool thing, all of the tigers will be displayed around town. Just like the flying pigs around the streets of Cincinnati...these glass tigers will be displayed around Ansonia in front of the businesses who donated to the project. A really cool initiative from Ansonia Elementary for a town of just 1,000 people.
