6th grader wins best in show
Clara Morlock of Rindge was awarded Best in Show for her cat sculpture in the “Famous Cats” exhibit at the Fitchburg Art Museum. The show was juried by staff at the museum.
Morlock is a sixth grader at Applewild School in Fitchburg, Mass., and her cat sculpture was based on the work of artist Mary Cassatt.
Every year, the sixth grade creates works based on famous artists, with each year having a different theme. This year’s theme was cats.
Students also wrote a narrative about the artist who inspired their work and how they worked to show elements of the artist’s style in their own creations.
