Cambridge students participate in Olympics of the Visual Arts
Cambridge art students Olivia Begin, Shannon Brainerd, Morgan Couture, Angie Dill, Natalie Giordano, Emma Haynes and Max McClenithan participated in the New York State Art Teachers Association 37th Olympics of the Visual Arts held at the Saratoga Springs City Center. The program provides an opportunity for students to participate in individual or group artistic problem solving, with a new series of problems presented every fall. Students create long-range solutions at their schools, and then travel to the Saratoga Springs City Center to compete on short-range spontaneous problems in a day-long celebration of creativity.
This is just the district's second year participating in this event and last year Shannon Brainerd and Morgan Couture placed second in the photography contest in 2018.
