Students used watercolor, Sharpie markers and colored pencils to respond to what they loved and what they learned during our time with our artists-in-residence from Bread and Puppet Theater.
Many artists drew their favorite parts of the final pageant, which showed our community's response to Hurricane Irene in August 2011.
