DANSVILLE — Dansville Central art students took time out of their school day to work on several downtown windows for Winter in the Village this year.
At the Genesee Country Express and Dansville and Wayland PennySaver three talented seniors, Justin Green, Cody Dudek, and Ciara Quibell created a lovely winter display.
Green worked hard on the snow, snowflakes, Igloo and Snowman. Dudek worked hard on the Gingerbread Man, candy canes, and stenciling the artwork. Quibell worked hard on the Santa Claus and Rudolph, and Charlie Brown Christmas scene. All of the work is very well done.
There were about 10 groups who were set up at different business locations in downtown Dansville. These students were all Dansville High School students in the art department.
They were all driven down by bus the Sunrise Restaurant, and carried their materials to their assigned locations around 8 a.m. on Thursday. They were all picked up at Sunrise Restaurant around 2 p.m.
The group went to The Coffee Cup for lunch around noon, and came back to finish their work at the newspaper/PennySaver office. This is the first year any of them have worked on the window art for Winter in the Village.
Green said the group all had their own ideas, and worked on a different range of art for the window display.
“Our art teacher asked all of us to do it,” he said. “We took about three days to plan out what we wanted to do, and stencil the artwork.”
Dudek did most of the stenciling himself for the art display. They all had to trace the art onto the windows.
“I did most of it by free hand,” he said. “We had to trace the art onto the windows, which was hard to see. It was a lot of fun to do.”
Dudek plans on coaching Dansville Central Soccer next year after he graduates.
Quibell said she enjoyed doing the artwork as well with her fellow classmates.
“I chose to do Charlie Brown Christmas, because that is my favorite Christmas movie,” she said. “This was a lot of fun, and I wish we could’ve done it in the past.”
Quibell said she plans on being a Child Psychologist.
Green said he enjoyed doing the snowflakes and Igloo.
“I loved the colors of the Igloo,” he said. “It was fun to get out of school, and do something different. We want the community to see it.”
Green plans on joining the US Air Force when he graduates next year.
The work will be on display until Jan. 8, 2018.
