Art Smart

Thank you to all the students who colored the “Chicago Picasso” by Pablo Picasso last month. Many students thought the sculpture looked like a monkey or bird, but some thought it looked like a lamp, trophy, mummy, snake, princess, pharaoh, or even a beast with its tongue sticking out! We hope the students enjoy their fun hamster stickers as a participation prize. Below are the winners for February. Congratulations to all the winners!
