The Ratner School Art Program

It was wonderful to have another full week of classes. We are finishing projects in many of the classes and the students are well into the expectations of the art program. They enter the art room focused and ready to work each class and always exclaim with great dismay at the end of each class. They have not yet figured out how art class seems to go so much faster with each new project. I am glad we have such engaged art students at the Ratner School!  I taught a new unit to the Kindergarten students this week and showed them examples of the work of Edward Durell Stone, the original architect of our school. There are many photos of his iconic architecture on the internet and I enjoyed learning more about him. I added a link to his organization's page if you would like to learn more about him.
