Learning from Experts

Thank you to our PTA for providing our students with two excellent opportunities to learn about the arts from experts in the field. On Wednesday, all Trillium students had the opportunity to learn from Newbery Medal winning author, Matt de la Pena. Mr. de la Pena shared his story of how he grew to become an author. He also gave students an inside look at how picture books are made. As he did this, he shared a message of inclusivity with our students. His story and message were interesting, insightful and inspiring. Please be sure to ask your children what they learned from him and what it is causing them to think about now.

Next week, Artist Bumblebeelovesyou will be visiting Trillium Creek. He uses stenciling and mixed media and is best known for creating large-scale murals. His pieces seek to capture a sense of the whimsy, playfulness, innocence, freedom and joy of childhood. Again, a big thank you to our PTA and a generous Trillium family for providing this opportunity to our students. All of Trillium’s students will have an opportunity to learn about this artist’s work firsthand. Our students in grades K-2 will work on individual projects in the style of this artist. Students in grades 3-5 will be going outside to assist the artist in painting a mural in our covered area. We are very excited for this opportunity for our students to learn about and participate in creating a piece of art. Please watch for an email from your child’s teacher regarding the specific day your child should come to school ready to do some painting!
