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.
