Silent Auction
  • For the Silent Auction our classroom is planning on a - A picnic lunch with Miss Sheela, Ms. Kelly and Ms. Mei-Lan, sometime in May.
  • Our Auction Item is "A Summer Garden", Torn Paper Painting on Canvas -This "painting in paper" or "Torn Paper Painting" is exactly that, paper. Hundreds of hand torn pieces of paper was used to create this color palette by the children.  In the end the entire piece was coated over with a thin layer of varnish to protect the surface but not lose the texture.  Picture attached below.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
