Great start to Q2!

7th graders working on their watercolor fish compositions

8th grade is working very hard on their Gallery Hop paintings... adding figures next week!

All 6th graders who take art in quarter 2 have the wonderful and unique opportunity of donating artwork to the patients staying at Concord Hospital during the Thanksgiving holiday.  Each patient will recieve a stunning placemat with their Thanksgiving meal.  This partnership is a RMS tradition that is greatly appreciated by the CH staff and patients.   Well done, 6th graders!
