Cut Paper Still Life

I’m endeavoring to post artwork created by AMS students on artsonia.com. My hope is to have work created in Q3 posted in the next week or so.










*Update* Art Display

Our McGlynn Elementary Art display will run from June 10th through June 15th.  The official ” Art Open House ” is scheduled for Wednesday June 15th from 5:45-6:30pm, prior to grade 5 moving on ceremony.  We understand that many families have other obligations during the month of June, and hope that you can take a moment to admire the hard work that has taken place all year at some point over the next two weeks.


Thank you for your continued support of our Visual Arts Program at the McGlynn Elementary School!



Happy Holidays


Fourth grade students at the McGlynn Elementary School were invited to part in the “Chancellors Card Contest” in collaboration with the University of Massachusetts, Boston.

Each year Chancellor Motely partners with a local school to create artwork that will be featured on the official holiday greeting card! This year, 4th graders at the McGlynn Elementary were chosen for this amazing opportunity. Additionally, one piece is selected for animation and can be found on the University’s website (see link below).

Working with the theme of “Winter Wonderland,” all fourth grade students had the opportunity to participate in creating a unique piece using a variety of materials. Children worked tirelessly for two weeks during art, snack time, recess, and even after school to ensure their piece would make a statement. Each and every student should be proud of their accomplishment!

And the winners are:

  • “Night Skating” by Kathleen Whisler, 3rd place
  • “Hot Chocolate” by Alexis Schrebler 2nd place
  • “Skates” by Natamil Moya 1st place
  • Honorable Mention- “Night Skiing” by Zoe Sipcic, whose work was chosen for animation zoe
  •   kathleen alexis
  • natamil2

*UPDATE* Spring Open House * UPDATE*


To maximize viewing opportunities for families, the Spring Art Display will run in conjunction with Sounds of Summer and Grade 5 Moving on Ceremony. Student work will be on display from Monday, June 16 thru Friday evening.

We hope to see you there!
