Greenbriar Art Adventure: 2nd Grade
Art Adventure is a PTO sponsored program that gives parent volunteers the opportunity to teach art and cultural appreciation through classroom lessons and cultural events.
Each school year, every grade will experience one cultural event and three classroom lessons. Absolutely no creativity or art experience is necessary! All classroom lessons and cultural events include scripted lesson plans and materials.

Students will learn about the life and work of Wilson Bentley and discuss principles of symmetry and pattern and create their own one-of-a-kind snowflake.
