We've already made art! The third graders are excited to be back in school. Check out their back to school owls. The kindergarten class is learning to line and shape in everything around them.

“Selfies” (self-portraits) were the assignments for these grades. Art can be a ton of fun for a student of this age. However, simply trying to draw a line can be overwhelming, so we began the year with putting pencil and crayon to the paper.
