The 2nd graders are learning about the folk art tradition of Mexico’s Amate bark paintings. Inspired by the celebratory, colorful paintings, the students have created the ultimate birthday party. They each chose 4 activities that would have at a celebration in their honor. Some of the activities include: go kart racing, skiing, hot air balloon rides, sno kone machines, trampolines…the list could go on forever. The photos show the students at work, painting with neon paints.
