RBK Artists

First graders created these whimsical abstract sculptures this week in art class with Miss Korchowsky. They learned all about the art of sculptor Alexander Calder, who was famous for creating large mobiles and kinetic sculptures. Imaginations ran free as students creatively played with the building materials.
