Camden’s Excellent Elementary School Art Teachers

 
My two Art Goes to School Classes (AGTS) today in Cherry Hill revealed the heights students can reach through interacting with reproductions of fine art. The second and third grade classes responded to a portfolio of pictures with enthusiasm and originality. At the end of the class they quickly drew fine, spontaneous, abstract designs without any hesitation.
Their art teacher, who observed the classes given by this visiting teacher, was proud of her proteges. Without her dedication, teaching skills, enthusiasm and encouragement the students would not have known what to say, what to do!

Camden, NJ, a struggling city, has reason to be proud of its elementary school art teachers who produce results similar to those in Cherry Hill, a well-to-do town. Please enjoy the samples of artwork initiated by Ms. Kring Schreifels at Camden Forward School (Urban Promise).

The students did variations on themes by William Johnson and Romare Bearden.
