Last week, in art students voted upon the name for our TG Ox. I’m Ox-cited to announce.. (drum roll please) that the name chosen by our students is… PATCHES!!
Be on the look out for Patches this summer, as he will be making his debut somewhere outside of TG. Patches will join other oxen from the Valley for the Hopewell Valley Arts Council’s, Stampede. I would like to thank our staff and students for their excitement, flexibility, and hard work these past 4 months. What a special project and opportunity this has been for our students. Our TG ox, is a visual display and celebration of what it means to be a Toll Gator. What a truly special place Toll Gate is.
Happy Pennington Day!
Pennington Day Symbol finds a place on our Ox.
Students were Ox-cited to get back to work on our TG Ox. A lot of wonderful progress has been made the last couple of weeks. Our vision is really started to come to life. What began as an idea and a 2-D drawings has taken shape, form and color. Oh and lots of time and love. Students have been busy painting patches of color and decorating them with images of TG. This past week, we started working on images of Field day, May Day, and Garden Gate. Images that are so special to the students, staff, and families of Toll Gate.
Enjoy the very happy/ focused faces of our Toll Gate Artists. Patches of creativity and love will soon wrap around our entire Ox.
We have been working hard in art covering each patch with vivid colors and details. This week our ox got some Alligator scales, math symbols, and the dove of peace. I was very impressed with the fine work our Monday and Tuesday classes did! Here is a sneak peak at this week’s progress! Have a wonderful Spring Break!!
Our community quilt is really starting to come to life! We’ve had so many visitors this past week admiring the work of our TG Artists. Enjoy!
