Fall Arts Classes
Fall art classes have been off to a great start with projects geared to the school wide celebration of Spanish Heritage Month at the Blackstone. Art teacher Olivia Chaffee engaged her kindergarten through 2nd grade classes in a mask making project. Students made Mexican Luchador masks from recycled cardboard lunch trays and found inspiration from author Yuyi Morales’s character, Nino. 3rd through 5th grade classes produced wonderful self-portrait collages based on each students individual cultural heritage and included themes of unity, respect and excellence.
Blackstone art teacher Olivia Chaffee also helped students celebrate Spanish Heritage Day by dressing as important personalities in Latin American culture.
