Kindergarten Zoo started in the hands of Seniors 2013!

A wonderful artistic collaboration took place this spring between the advanced art students in Swartley and our neighbors in the Bede school Kindergarten classes... Upper School students took a pause from their portfolio building endeavors and sketched out large animals from all over the world.  The students of Dwight-Englewood's kindergarten classes then added color, details and environments for the animals to roam within their classroom.
This week, several of our Upper School student artists visited the 'Zoo' and were delighted to hear facts about the animals as well as meet their collaborators and see the results of their shared artistic work.

The rooms were divided into climates and groups that share similar environments.

Students were able to show off their knowledge of their respective animals and impress our Upper School artists.

Vanessa 13' works on the initial sketch of the poison arrow frog.
After a round of questions like, 'What does your animal eat?' and hearing fun facts about the animals it was time for the 'big' artists to return to Swartley reinvigorated with the energy of their slightly smaller counterparts.
