Lion King Masks Completed

A successful closure for The Lion King activities that consumed the eighth grade art classes for the past month: everyone discussing it in class.

Students at Camden Forward School, under the direction of art teacher, Julie Kring-Schreifels, completed the masks that were influenced by the production they saw of Julie Taymor’s Lion King at the Philadelphia Academy of Music on April 15th. Art Aware sponsored the theatrical outing.

The proof is in the pudding. Look at the results!

These students will be graduating in June. The years of creating art and having it displayed throughout their classrooms and at home will be an important memory of their elementary school experience. It will remain with them for a lifetime.

With luck, when they have their own children, they will find an elementary school with a extraordinary art program similar to the one at Camden Forward and pass down the creative tradition.
