Watercolor Artwork Display, December 2015

We displayed all of the Watercolor Painting Projects in the art room hallway in December and January as part of our winter gallery.

The watercolor project was developed by Daniela Sents, a Westgate parent. The students created poems describing themselves with watercolor and fine point markers.

Our winter gallery theme was – “I am poems” “We are like a snowflake – all different in our own beautiful way”
