PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. Bedford Road School parents and students filled their minds and their stomachs on Tuesday night during a joint bake sale and art show at the school.
The schools annual art show was the first for new art teacher Erica Siciliano. Students from all of her classes, kindergarten through fourth grade, displayed pieces of art work in separate galleries throughout the school.
Its the culmination of the year in art, said Superintendent Mary Fox-Alter. We have a room just set up for art. Theres a kiln here; ceramics. Its very important to the community.
Galleries included work inspired by artist Vincent Van Gogh, artist Laurel Burch, a book called The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister, and more. Another gallery featured lifesize bags of candy.
If looking at candy wasnt enough, visitors of the art show also had the opportunity to satisfy their sweet tooth at the Bedford Road School PTAs annual bake sale. Parents and teachers contributed a variety homemade baked goods that were sold at the event.
The fundraising event also sold larger items during its silent auction. Community members had the chance to bid on plates of cookies, cakes, pies, bread, and more. Kindergarten teacher Debbie Anttila decided to combine her art and baking skills with cupcakes resembling the title character in the popular childrens book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
