THE ART THAT CONNECTS THEM

Posted September 28 at 3:00pm

Students in Kaylin Morran’s art class were in for a surprise when they walked into class today. There were new paintings on exhibit and the artists were none other than the students’ parents.

While participating in the Open House event for grades 7-8 on Wednesday night, parents sampled one of the creative assignments on their children’s art syllabus this year. Not only did they leave their mark and masterpieces behind, the parents and students’ work will now hang side by side.

This exercise helps bridge the home and the classroom, and it makes for an interesting dinner-table conversation.
