AV Spring Art Happening Recap

Our Spring Art Happening was amazing! Students completed four Spring-themed art projects, including a collaborative drawing game, creating clay pollinators, making a continuous line self portrait, and drawing beautiful flowers with oil pastels. Thank you to Cassandra Kaldor for organizing and leading the event, and the many other volunteers who came to help!
