North Falmouth Elementary Announces Artist-in-Residence Program Joining Literacy & Arts Together. North Falmouth Elementary School will be joined by Boston artist, Caleb Neeon to create an entry-way mural at the school in February 2020.
The idea grew out of the book “McElligot's Pool” by Dr. Seuss in which a boy, Marco, imagines all kinds of sea creatures living in a small pool of water. All students will read the book as part of the school's "One Book, One Community" project. Each teacher in the school also receives a copy of the book for their classroom library. Caleb will be an artist-in-residence at North Falmouth during the week of February 3. He will be painting a mural in the front entrance with an ocean theme, inspired by the message in McElligot's Pool. Students will be creating drawings with Caleb that he will incorporate into the final mural. Students will also create 3D projects in art class that are inspired by the artist's mural and WHOI scientist presentations.
Event's tied to this book include:
The following organizations assisted with this project: Eight Cousins Books, Falmouth Education Foundation, and North Falmouth Elementary PTO.

Second graders learned a bit about Salvador Dali, and had some fun with his famous mustache! They studied Salvador Dali and and did portraits of him complete with outrageous mustaches. Art appreciation is funded by the PTO and parent volunteers run the lessons. It’s so much fun!
