One of the the best signs of a healthy school is a healthy art program. Check out a short panoramic video of Mrs. Avis’s art room: Horizart
Be sure to note the collaborative work tables, sink, smart board and color laser printer. Isn’t there nice light from the South facing windows? The best part of her room is not any “thing” at all but the creativity that’s encouraged there. Art is made all year long at Chaplin elementary School. Mrs. Avis makes sure her students are grounded in a very broad history of art that spans from Neanderthal cave paintings all the way to modern art.
