Thank goodness for SPRING!!!

Hello from the Art Room!! We have been missing for the last couple months because we got a twitter and discovered instant gratification! has been a crazy winter. We haven't posted since December and so much has happened! We had three students win top prizes in the Scholastic Awards- the most prestigious art awards in America! Congrats to Abe, Tom and Sam!
