Pictured are Artist Lorena Salcedo-Watson & Kindergarten Student Kaiya Griffin
During the week of January 9th , local artist Lorena Salcedo-Watson spent a week at Brookhaven Elementary School working with art teacher, Michelle Procida and her students. As part of a program funded by the South Country Education Foundation, Ms. Salcedo-Watson collaborated with students in the art room, exploring line, shape, texture, and color in nature’s treasures. They created original works of art and afterwards completed a paper reflecting on their experience.
Ms. Salcedo-Watson also prepared a school wide collage with drawings contributed from students and staff. The collage is on display in the Brookhaven Elementary School lobby. Staff and students are grateful to both Ms. Salcedo-Watson and the South Country Education Foundation for their support in providing this wonderful opportunity.
