In their classrooms, kindergarten students travel to different countries each week.  During art classes students learned about artists from these countries while learning art concepts and exploring different media for self-expression.

The students learned about the French artist Henri Matisse and his cut out techniques. They created a collage by using geometric and organic shapes.
