This afternoon, our Grade 2 students enjoyed one of their favorite annual activities in preparation for their Shakespeare production: working with art students from the high school to create our background scenery. High School art teacher, Mr. Harper, and a number of Grade 10 students worked with the Grade 2 students to sketch and design ideas for different scenes for Twelfth Night, which is this year’s play. The best part, however, was painting side by side and getting a little messy!
The opportunity to work with older students is a unique characteristic that a school like Riverstone, with Preschool through High School students all on one campus, can offer. Mr. Lindsay, Grade 2 teacher, wrote, “We are always glad to take advantage of opportunities such as the 9th graders helping us with our music for the play, and today’s painting project with 10th graders.”
We can’t wait to see the play!
