Have you noticed the beginning of a new garden sprouting up on the walls of P-16? The exterior entry wall features the varied and creative art of the Mixed Media and 1-2 Art Spring Enrichment Classes. Audrey Hepburn said, "To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow." Our Thornhill artists have big plans and are definitely believers in tomorrow!

IN MONTCLAIR VILLAGE: The Sakura (Japanese Cherry Blossom) art of Ms. Young's 5th grade class continues to be on exhibit at Yogofina's. Soon the artworks inspired by the work of Joan Miro done by Mr. Kloess' class will go on display there.

"Views on the Outdoors" and "In our World..." are now on exhibit at Montclair Sports - created by the 1st and 2nd Grade Art Enrichment Spring Session Class. The art gives the students' views on springtime and fun in the outdoors.

A new exhibit of TK/K art will be on exhibit next weekend at Farmstead Cheeses and Wine - the TK and K Art Enrichment Spring Session Class are currently exploring life in the sea.

Please support the arts and the children of Thornhill by viewing these galleries. Please also consider giving Montclair Sports, Yogofina's and Farmstead Cheeses and Wines your business.
