Our 2nd grade students have been taking part in an amazing global art collaboration, much of it completed in their immersion art class. A program called Crossroads has partnered Avenues New York, Jan Kath gallery, and Kelsang Primary School in Kathmandu, Nepal, in a year-long carpet-design and pen-pal partnership.
