This week Westside has the privilege of hosting Claudia Jex, one of Nebo School District's two Visual Arts Specialists. She is spending the week teaching art lessons in classes, and also working with teachers to find ways to integrate visual art into the regular core curriculum. On Tuesday the fourth grade classes had a lesson that involved learning to draw trees by breaking them down into smaller pieces. "She's blowing my mind," one fourth grader whispered to himself with a huge grin, as he learned to draw branches by making V's and Y's with his pencil. We're having a great time with Ms. Jex, and we look forward to having her back soon!
