The sixth grade students in Mrs. Wilhelm's class at Zane Middle School created stop motion videos to illustrate their understanding of figurative language. Teaching artist Joseph Wilhelm helped the students understand the video technology.
Hoopa Valley Elementary Schooll is participating in the Turnaround Arts Initiative led by the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities. On May 25th ten self-portraits drawn by 6th grade students were displayed in the East Wing of The White House coinciding with the Talent show organized to celebrate the Turnaround Arts achievements. The students were Maliyah Ballesteros, Kagan Renteria, Trey Crawford, Xatimniim Drake, Faith White, Issac Moon-Davis, Francis O'Neill, Caw-tep Thompson, Isabella McNally and David Lewis Jr.
This school was the only one representing the West Coast Turnaround Arts schools with visual art. Shout-out to all the 6th graders who took part in the project and their teachers Jill Henning, Page Matilton and Dave Sanders!
