El León

The story behind our giant paper sculptures:

Standing nearly 10 feet tall, our tremendous lion 
greets everyone entering the art room.

Before   &    After

Each student contributes to the installation 
        by designing one piece of the mane.

    Dear Ms. Palefsky,

    As a teacher who had had the distinct pleasure of working with you at your previous school, I am thrilled to see that you keep shifting the boundaries when it comes to creating art. The sky's the limit! Keep on doing the fantastic job that you're doing -- and inspiring a new generation of talented artists!
