Chair With a Flair Auction to Benefit Cultural Programming in Marlborough
Whitcomb students and teachers recently used their artistic skills to benefit a community fund-raising event. Both art clubs embraced the challenge to take an older wooden chair and give it new life through paint and creativity. The “Chair With a Flair” Auction event gave the students a chance to work together toward a common goal.
The four-week process included brainstorming ideas, editing ideas together, sanding and preparing the chairs, and painting the finished design onto the chairs.The Whitcomb School art club students, and advisor Cheryl Wareck and Danielle Pollard, are very grateful to have been a part of this community event! About 30 hand-painted chairs will be auctioned on May 23, with all proceeds going to future cultural programming in Marlborough.
