One Whole Day for Holiday Art & Ornaments #sharelittleton

Art teacher Ann Cunningham works with seniors and ITP students

Tuesday is art day anyway, but this week it was art day all day long. Every student and staff member worked in the art room with Ann Cunningham and Jenny Callahan making ornaments, holiday cards or what ever else suited their fancy. Without a doubt , everyone enjoyed the break from regular classes and the chance to get into the holiday spirit!
