adorned, with beautiful artwork that has been created by our talented students.
The past few weeks, our students in Grade K – 1 have learned about Vincent Van

learned about self-portraits. They have created an assortment of projects
spanning from collages, 3D portraits, and historical art inspired
self-portraits. Our Grade 5 students looked the Pop-Art movement and created
self-portraits influenced by artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Linchtenstein. Our goal is to ensure that each student has
a masterpiece that is proudly displayed within our school. These projects have
been inspired by our wonderful art teachers, Mrs. Leanne Delaney, Mme Lisa Cormier, and Ms. Emma Delaney. We are fortunate to
have Ms. Delaney join our team as she completes her student internship. She has
a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts and is currently an Education student from Crandall
University. In her spare time, she works out of a printmaking studio at the
