Art in schools these days

I was impressed by the artwork adorning the halls of Rosewood Avenue Elementary in West Hollywood. From dioramas to Imaginative Portraits, it was inspiring to see the level of creativity that students are expressing-- and equally reassuring to see teachers encourage it.

The Imaginative Portraits below reminded me of the American artist Romare Bearden, whose collages inject black and white photographs into a swath of color.

Yay for public schools!
