"While not all artists are chess players, all chess players are artists" -Marcel Duchamp

  • Calvin Leete 3rd grade classes have collaborated to create a unique and stunning chess board. 

  • Each student was asked to create a design that reflects mathematics as an art form. Children chose fractals, geometric shapes and images that reflected their distinct personality. 

  • The chess board was crafted into a lovely box style chess board handmade from scratch of 1 INCH RED OAK by Leete parent Mark Goodfellow.

  • Drawers were incorporated into the design to house chess & checker pieces.

  • Checker pieces were also decorated by the 3rd grade students.

  • This elegant chess board will make a lovely addition to your home, capturing your child's artistic contribution!
