schools, and Hampstead Middle School work is dis- played as well. About 200 items are on display, includ- ing pen and ink drawings, watercolors, weaving, print- making, collages, sand painting, computer art and three-dimensional work. Kristen Sarno, art educa-
tor at Gilbert H Hood, was the driving force behind the exhibit. “I organized this show
because I, along with my fellow art teachers in the Derry Cooperative School District, really wanted to show the community the amazing visual artwork that the children in the Derry and other schools create,” said Sarno. “Compared to the

Jackie Bjork, a West Running Brook eighth grad- er, proudly showed her art- work.
“I did this CREATE on a piece of drywall and then painted it with acrylic paint in Kellen Rattigan’s art class,” she said. “It was fun.” Another student who
was excited to have her work on display was Nicol- ette Colon, 13, a seventh grader at Gilbert H. Hood. “I created this guitar in my art class out of foam and then I painted the foam and there it is,” she said with a broad smile.

face was wreathed in smiles as he introduced Sarno to people and fielded questions from parents.
