Frostig Families Celebrate Student Creativity at Evening with the Fine Arts
The student sculptures, paintings, mosaics and masks were created over the course of the school year. The students took their inspiration from an international mix of traditions, including African masks, Chinese brush painting, Swedish Dala horses, Oaxacan carvings and Peruvian mola panels.
Family members, friends and staff enjoyed a casual dinner in the school yard before entering Gates Hall to view the art work. Some of the pieces were for display only while others were for sale.
Frostig School offers a strong arts program that includes studio art, music, drama and film. As a school for children with learning differences, Frostig employs a variety of teaching strategies to engage students and develop their strengths. The arts are powerful learning tools because they allow children to express themselves, develop new skills and excel in school.
