New Art on Display
Education Assistant Pat, Volunteer Coordinator Kathy, Education Specialist Mary, and Artist Jim drove from the Hoover Presidential Library to present the Mt. Vernon school with a framed collage created by author/illustrator Susan L. Roth. Washington Elementary was the lucky school to receive the collage by lottery after Mrs. Mauer and Mrs. Scearce’s fourth grade reading group attended a workshop with the author. Mary presented the picture and Jim engaged the students in a discussion of the elements of art present in the piece. Jim explained and let the students explore the collage’s visual lines, rhythm, and center of interest. The collage is on display in the 4th grade hallway in Washington Elementary School.
