Picture Book Art 2013-14

During the first marking period, Creative Writing students composed narratives for 28-page children’s picture books.  After the stories were finished, Ms. DiOrio asked if art students would create images for the covers of and pages inside the picture books.   The answer was yes.  Visual Arts 1 students drew these mixed media images mainly using pen and ink and water color. Thank you, Mrs. Colletto and art students.  We enjoyed collaborating with you!

We are happy to announce that these images were displayed at the Edison Mayor’s Office this year.
