Chester Academy art students continued their annual tradition of holiday window painting this year in the Village of Chester last Tuesday and Thursday, Dec. 1 and 3.

To accommodate safety and social distancing, window painting took place over two days with students spread throughout Main Street.

Each year, Mayor Tom Bell coordinates this annual event with the business owners on Main Street.

Chester Academy appreciates the support of this incredible community and was excited to be out there once again decorating the Village of Chester.

In what has become an annual tradition, students were treated to an amazing lunch courtesy of the Rustic Wheelhouse.

“We are proud to have kept this tradition going during this global pandemic,” Chester Academy Principal John Flanagan said in the press release detailing the tradition, “and would like to thank our talented art students, along with the hard work of their teachers Andrew Latini and Marie Kriner in making this day both safe and successful.”
