Throughout the month of September, League School students’ artwork will be featured at Cilla’s Coffeehouse, 5A Liberty Lane, in Norfolk. Art from approximately a dozen artists across the Foundations, Content Teaching, Pathfinder, and Transitions programs will be shown. “We will display a variety of mediums including painting, drawing, collage, two-dimensional, and potentially photography,” said Danielle Pollard, the school’s art teacher.
“Art is an integral part our curriculum,” said Danielle. “It allows the students to communicate and express themselves. Each piece of art is as unique as the students are.”
On Wednesday, September 18th, there will be a special reception from 6:00-8:00pm hosted by Tracey Robbins, League School Board Member and Senior Vice President of Norwood Bank. “My husband and I have been captivated by the students’ artwork,” said Tracey. “Through the artist’s work, we discover a different perspective of a particular subject that we may not have appreciated before.”
Tracey expressed appreciation to Mary Ellen Blue, Cilla’s owner, for her support of the League School and its students. “I look forward to showcasing our students’ talent at such a welcoming venue and invite all League School supporters to attend,” said Tracey.
If you’re not able to attend the special open house event, stop by Cilla’s starting on Wednesday, September 4, through the end of the month. Cilla’s is open Monday-Friday from 6AM-3PM; Saturday 7AM-3PM; and Sunday 7AM-2:30PM. Cilla’s features specialty coffee, cold brew, tea, and mouth-watering breakfast, pastries, and lunch.
