Leigh Art Students Create Unique Project: “Little Doors of Leigh”

At the end of the school year, Mrs. Ann Cerv’s art students completed unique final projects for art class: the “Little Doors of Leigh.”


Each student chose a partner and then were assigned to make a little door out of clay wire and glass. Once the doors were constructed, they were fired in the kiln, then painted by the students.


Once the doors were finished, students asked local businesses around town if they would be allowed to put the doors up on the exterior of their building. The students were very proud of the 8 doors they completed, as they were very time consuming and detailed.  It was great to see their projects showcased as pieces of living art in the community.


Ann Cerv, art teacher at Leigh and Clarkson, said, “The inspiration for the doors came from an artist in Chicago who would permanently attach little doors “graffiti style” around the city: under bypasses, on public walls, etc.  The difference between her work and ours is that we got permission to display them! I’m so proud of the kids and the work they did. I’m hoping these doors will bring a smile to people in Leigh and visitors to Leigh for many years to come!”


The students thought that it would be fun for children to search for these cute little doors around town. They are discreet, but if you look hard enough, you will certainly see why the art students are so proud of their projects!


Steve McKelvey, owner of Steve’s Madhouse Market, agreed to let the students put one on his business.  


“I think they are really neat,” McKelvey said. “I have been getting a lot of compliments on it.”


Wayne Schroeder, from Wayne’s Repair, said, “I was glad to see that the art class showed interest in the businesses down on Main Street. Keep up the good work!”
