After visiting the Painted Turtle, a camp for kids with long-term illnesses, Carter ’10 decided to organize an arts-inspired fundraiser for the camp on March 3.
“I thought that the camp was so incredible, and the kids were so happy – I loved that it was giving the kids a chance to go to a normal summer camp. I loved how much art they were doing, and I thought it was a perfect cause for Marlborough,” Carter said.
For an A Period and lunch, students paid admission to partake in six different art activities on the field. Some crocheted with physics instructor Judy Storm, while others finger painted, made necklaces out of candy, pasta, and cereal, popped balloons filled with paint with darts, drew their favorite teachers, and decorated a quilt for kids with cancer.
“I think it was really fantastic – people seemed to be having a really good time,” Carter said. The event raised about five hundred dollars, which will go towards buying art supplies for the camp.
