The first-graders at the Barnard Early Childhood Center participated in a fun special program with art teacher Lori Zung, in collaboration with artist Cliff Mendelson, who hosted a program called “Day in Clay.” The workshop empowered students with knowledge regarding how art is created and its connection to various cultures. This hands-on experience demonstrated the process and effort that goes into creating beautiful pieces. Students used their imaginations and skill to create original pieces as well as a larger piece worked on collectively as a group. The event was a lot of fun and a wonderful, engaging experience. Fourth-graders at Jefferson Elementary School experienced the program last week. View photos at https://bit.ly/3PCVZ2p.
