L-C art students paint the town festively

You do not have to go to a department store in a big city to see holiday-themed window decorations.

 

Members of Luxemburg-Casco’s Art Club and Art 4 classes took to the streets of the two villages to paint images of snowmen, reindeer, and other winter scenes. According to Luxemburg-Casco Art Teacher Rebecca Woodbury, the tradition has been going on for over a decade. Her program adopted it from the Lions Leo Club at the school, which would do the window painting at just a handful of businesses. The efforts grew to 53 businesses this year in Luxemburg and Casco, plus some teachers inside their schools. Woodbury says Luxemburg-Casco Principal Troy Haws donated the money for the paint. It took about 25 students working in small groups to paint all of the different scenes across the community.

 

The students only ask for the business' glass to be a canvas for a few weeks, though Woodbury adds that some give them a little money to buy some snacks if they did not provide them already. It is a tradition that is enjoyed by all, according to Woodbury. “It’s pretty simple, but the community really enjoys it, the kids really enjoy doing it, so it’s something pretty easy that we can just take a little time to do. It really gets people excited for the holidays.”
