From K to 3rd Grade: The Difference Between Art and Craft

3rd Grade Class

 

 

 

Jeffrey Phillips teaches art to over 480 Leap Academy students (K to 3rd grade) in Camden, N.J.   He doesn’t use kitchy plastic cutout stars and sunbursts. If the kids want to include stars and sunbursts in their art, they have to draw and/or cut them out to make their own.

Jeff has spent over 40 hours of his own time putting together tonight’s art show.

Such fantastic work the students did with just paper and  paint (nothing manufactured) that was inspired by this expert teacher.

Please look at the samples of KB class, 1A class, 2A individual painting called “Outside My Window” and 3A class.
