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”
