Arts in the Community
The Farmington Visual Arts Department strives to work in partnership with parents, community members, and organizations within the community in an effort to present our students with real world experiences and every possible opportunity to expand understanding and appreciation of the fine and applied arts.

Art in the Community
Thanks to a collaboration that Mrs. Turner has established in the community, FPS students have their artwork hanging at the CT Childrens Hospital and also are featured at Starbucks in Farmington. We are excited about the accolades that our students are receiving from the community.
Farmington River Mural
Molly Lantagne, with the support of FOCUS, led Union School students through a mural project that reflected their research of the Farmington River. They created a meaningful and aesthetically pleasing outdoor mural for a nearby area undergoing construction. One of her students was quoted as saying, "I think it's cool to be able to pain all those beautiful fish".
Students in Mr. Corrigan's Alternative Energy Vehicle course design and build cars that are put to the test at Lime Rock Park. The cars run on solar batteries, so design and driving style contribute on the length of the race.
