Second-grade students at Gribbin School have been creating papier-mâché replicas of the City of Glen Cove during art class under the guidance of teacher LeeAnn Palazzo.

The students recently took a tour of Glen Cove, visiting famous landmarks and other important buildings. They then sketched the buildings they learned about for a school project. In addition to sketching, they worked together in groups to cover 3-D structures of buildings in papier-mâché, recreating the post office, police department, Glen Cove Mansion, Gribbin and Connolly schools, just to name a few. The students also discussed architecture as part of the art lesson. 

After the projects are painted and complete, they will be brought to City Hall to be featured as part of the city’s 350-year anniversary celebration on Memorial Day weekend.
