Art is in at the Lee Academy, Holmes and Lee afterschool programs. Students have been learning about poetry, painting, photography, and, most importantly, self-expression through the arts. As an artist, the students work together and as individuals to understand the large variety of ways to express themselves creatively. Ms. Bridget is an artist herself. According to Bridget,"Art making around others takes trust and respect". Through the Elliot School of Fine and Applied Arts, Ms. Bridget visits these elementary school students and helps them understand the complexities and importance of being an artist for yourself. On a weekly basis, these students are producing masterpieces of their own.
