Three- to five-year-old students created the artwork on display. They used drawing and painting skills along with different techniques like cutting, peeling, tearing, sponging, twisting, and gluing to create artwork that reflects their appreciation for nature, their family and friends, and for all the abundance life provides. Through this experience, the students use their imagination and creativity to express gratitude and joy.
