We are having so much fun. Eighth graders have created their plaster hand sculptures. These pieces of art are based on the work of artist George Segal. We looked at many images of his art and then got to work creating our own pieces. After the plaster dried and the students got their hands free, they painted them. Stop by the art room to check them out.

Second grade is a big year at St. Helen school. Students receive their sacraments of reconciliation and communion. I am so excited for them and proud of all the work that they are doing to prepare.

In the art room, we made a devotional for home. Using metal tooling and ink, we created a lovely repousse piece that each student can take home to remind them of this very special time in their lives.
