Andover Birthday Flag COMPETITION

In honor of Andover's 375th Birthday, 50 lamp posts lining Main Street in downtown will be decorated with celebratory flags. The Andover Visual Arts Department challenged young artists to create designs for the flags. The designs needed to convey the artist's personal connection to Andover. Congratulations to the Doherty Artists whose designs were chosen to become flags! Below are the winning submissions!

ACE 3D Art Kits

Special thanks to ACE (Andover Coalition for Education) for providing our artists with 3D Art kits! This year each student received a bag of 3D Art supplies and was challenged to create a sculpture based on an interesting scenario. Click the link below to read about the project and view student creations!

File Folder challenge

Check out what our young artists created using basic file folders!


The Giraffe became an official member of our Art community in 2018. The Giraffe does not have one specific name as the role of Emotional Support Giraffe requires an ability to take on the identity most comforting to the person seeking support.

Stop by Rm 113 for a Giraffe air hug as we continue practicing physical distancing!
