St. Louis-based artist and Watertown alumna Sarah Schempf Bernhardt spent a week working with Watertown High School students in Dave Pawl’s Advanced Placement studio art class.

Students were involved in the creation of a video featuring the local historic Schempf building. This is the third in a series highlighting local architecturaltreasures. In addition, the Schempf family band performed a number of songs in the building that will appear in the film. The film series will focus on movement, music and performance to artistically express the life and history of the buildings and the people who occupied them.

“The connection to Sarah’s family history was exciting, andinvolving her parents and siblings was a very special event,” said Pawl. “Sarah even got in front of the camera to sing with her family.” The film will be shown at Towne Cinema as part of the Art Walk in May.

Building owner Bill Limborg was very supportive of the project and has musical connections in his family history as well, Pawl said.
