Students of Emerald Elementary spent time recently picking up art supply bags at the school. A group of local art supporters came up with the idea, donated money, ordered supplies, and put together bags of new art materials for students to use to explore creatively at home while out of school. Included in the bag was also a list of a few art challenges. Additional challenges and lessons for using the materials can be found on the Emerald Specials Facebook page. Students are encouraged to submit pictures of their art to teacher Christi Ryan, who said Emerald staff and students are appreciative of the group’s thoughtfulness and generosity.
