Primary Lesson Combines Art, Language and Culture

Holy Cross primary students had the opportunity to meet an artist and have a hands-on experience screen printing. 

Jose Canales, a Honduran artist based in Covington, along with art teacher, Ms. Eliza, demonstrated the process, tools, and techniques in creating art pieces through the medium of screen printing. Each student was able to create his own print of the cross and anchor.

In addition to the lesson in art, the students also learned new vocabulary Spanish words. Spanish teacher Mrs. Terry taught students the different parts of the turkey in Spanish. It was a great opportunity to combine art, language and culture into one lesson.
