This morning I went to fifth grade at one of the local elementary schools that I have been working with for the past few years. I dearly love this class, and have been teaching them art since they were rather small squirrely third graders. Now they are turning eleven, and getting ready to transition into middle school. Their teacher had to leave the state unexpectedly last week, and the entire class has been melancholy. We decided to send letters and make portraits of each of them to send to her. Here are a few of these lovely goofballs.
