Exploring “Community” through Place Based Learning

Danvers Cares was a Community Partner in a Visual Art Place-Based Service Learning lesson during this 2017-2018 academic year: “We Are All Part of the Puzzle.”

The individual puzzle pieces created by Lotte Calnek’s first semester Studio Art classes were combined to make a 5’ x 24’ mural illustrating their experience at Danvers High School as a “place” of meaning and influence in their lives. It is currently on view in the second floor Guidance Department wing hallway.

Additionally, school-wide students, faculty, and staff were asked to optionally provide their remembrance of being a student at Danvers High. So let’s hear from you!

If you are alum of Danvers High School and would like to participate in communicating your remembrance of being a student, please write:

  • a few sentences to a short paragraph
  • first name
  • last name initial, and
  • year of graduation.
