Gaffney Elementary School
New Britain, CT

In November and December of 2012, over 600 students, teachers, parents and staff came together to create The Wave in the cafeteria of The Gaffney Elementary School in New Britain, Connecticut. The Gaffney School is a Higher Order Thinking (HOT) School that integrates the arts across disciplines, creating arts-rich environments that motivate students to make connections between and among subject areas and ideas. The Wave provided the opportunity for the whole school community to learn about water and develop a sense of pride and accomplishment through the shared process of contributing to a work of art on an important global issue. The artists donated their time and the materials to the school to make the installation happen.
