Cumberland High School art students, from left, Lynn Nachampasak, Emily Feng and Lauren Riley copy a Monet painting of waterlilies onto the wall of the Art Department. Art teachers Betsy MacDonald and Lauren Scotto said they encouraged their students to do the painting as a way to promote art in the school. The three seniors are all accomplished artists and will leave a memorable work for their peers,
according to Scotto. The project has blossomed into creations of art in other areas of the school, including an Andy Warhol â€˜Astronautâ€™ for a wall near the Science Department.
â€˜We just wanted to get the Art Department's name out there in the school and get kids interested in art,â€™ Scotto said.
