The art party was another HUGE success. The grade 8, 9 and 10 students had a fabulous time running art workshops for the LCS community. They taught elementary students, local students, teachers and parents. This is such a hi-light in my teaching career.
We had a huge variety of workshops from colouring, drawing, CD mandalas, zen tangle collage, bottle chandeliers, paper plate birds, line variation coffee cups, paper relief sculpture, a hand group project, to collage hamburgers, just to mention a few. All the stations were busy with excited activity. Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the event and especially for the hardworking grade 8,9 and 10 students. You honestly made me so proud!
