Kinderartists

Kinderartists have started a project in the art studio inspired by French artist, Henri Rousseau! Students looked at his painting, "Surprise" which shows a dream-like image of a tiger in the jungle during a rainstorm. The tiger looks like it is ready to pounce! Henri Rousseau painted faraway jungles, but really he just looked at plants from the local botanical gardens. Students created beautiful tiger drawings filled with lush plants like Rousseau did in his work. Soon they will be painting their images!

School committee member Doug Keith treated our Heritage House students to an annual fireside reading of “The Polar Express” in the Meetinghouse. The children gathered around Doug by the cozy fire and listened to him read the wonderful traditional holiday story. This year, Doug used a large computer monitor so that everyone could see the illustrations close up. Afterward, the students presented Doug with a gift and then everyone enjoyed some hot chocolate and snacks.
