Through a generous grant from the MetLife Foundation and Mondelez International, Morris Area Arts, along with partnerships with The Growing Stage Theatre, and Netcong Community Partnerships, brought local artist Dan Fenelon to the Netcong Elementary School to conduct Mask Workshops with students in grades six through eight.
Fenelon works with communities to create one of a kind original art projects. All the masks built by the students during the workshop were paraded and displayed at Netcong’s Pumpkin Illumination event on Sat., Oct. 29. Local students and parents paraded the illuminated masks down Main Street in Netcong after the annual trunk or treat Halloween celebration.
“It was wonderful to see the art work the students created on display for all of our local community members to see,” said Kathleen Walsh, Assistant Principal. “The event was well attended and provided an evening of fun for people of all ages.”
This is not the first time that the Netcong Elementary School has partnered with the Morris Area Arts and looks forward to partnering with the Morris Area Arts in the coming years.
