Welcome to Sketchbook Club!

Today was our first day of Sketchbook Club at PS77.  Seven of our extremely talented artists and ELL students are participating this year in the new club, designed to not only build upon skills in art, but also work on social and communication skills.  For our first meeting, students looked at the painting False Mirror by the artist Ren√© Magritte, and discussed how we all see the world differently. They then created their own eye drawings that reflected something important to them.  Students then shared their sketchbooks with the group and asked each other questions about their work.  We are looking forward to our next meeting when we will be creating surrealist inspired collages.
