Lisa Arnold - Mosaicist!

Lisa Arnold ... my childhood friend ... mosaic artist ... volunteered in our classroom this morning!
She wanted to teach the kids that they can deal with grief or other emotions through art in a positive way!
She focused on two art terms ... contrast & tesserae! (Ask your kiddos what those mean!)
Her message was powerful! She talked as they created ... "You are somebody ... No matter what color, age, etc... "
"Don't let anyone ever tell you any different!" She shared a poem with them called ... I Am Somebody! We are
going to add it to our poetry anthology and create one of our own using it's pattern!
