During this time of staying home and remote learning, many Stratton School students are busy being creative. This page is dedicated to them and designed to showcase their art work.
Art is not only something that can keep our hands and minds busy during our long days at home, but engaging in the creative process will keep our problem solving skills sharp and keep us active. The act of creating, wether it is building a sculpture or making a drawing can be a great escape, or it can also be used as a tool for self expression, as we all try to make sense of whats going on in our world and in our lives.
Please enjoy viewing your classmates work. I hope you are inspired to create something yourself. If you do, please email it to me so I can add it to this page.
Stay Well and I look forward to making art with you again soon! 🙂
