The children drew self-portraits in the Art Studio last week with B.Z. Before they began, the children  looked in the mirror and examined and felt their facial features. They read about Picasso and looked at his work. The portraits were put in the frames they made the previous week inspired by the lines and dots Matisse used in his work.
The project reflects each child's unique character. Amazing work!

This week we began visiting our school community helpers, Ms. Costa, the school secretary, Ms. Lee, the technology teacher and Ms. Bernard, the librarian. We learned about their jobs and got to try out their tools and take a tour of their work space.
