All About ART!

For visual art, we have finished our projects for the Young Artists Show, which opens March 14th at Little Saint, Healdsburg! K-2 Made drawings of their fantasy farmer’s market booth, and 3-6th invented new culinary tools.

The next 6 weeks will be dedicated to making puppets for the Climate Action Flash Mob Parade on April 22nd in the Healdsburg Plaza. Each class will create puppets based on a particular theme, such as water, air, and earth. We hope to have a mini parade at school on April 21st so that all students can participate.

Oh, and last week we also made spring flower drawings with our bodies in K and 1st!
