Our collaboration with Heckscher Museum keeps paying big dividends for our students. Their work with our Silas Wood students is currently on display at the sixth-grade center.

Our collaborative work with Heckscher Museum and Ms. Hickey and Ms. Cryer's art classes is flourishing, and the results of this latest partnership are on grand display at Silas Wood.

“The students learned about circles and spirals and used their Chromebooks online to explore samples found in nature and the man-made world,” said Heckscher Museum’s Kristina Schaaf, Associate Director of Education. “We also studied color theory and every student received a color palette and created their symmetrical rotating circle collages displayed here.”

Feel free to stop by Silas Wood and see the fantastic work on display. Of course, the bulletin boards, hallways, and classrooms are absolutely inspiring in every school, and the artwork serves as a visual reminder of well-balanced, productivity learning.
