Sam Goldfein, fourth grader, is our featured student artist for the month of February. Sam has always been a real joy to teach, and recently he showed some creativity and initiative that made him stand out from the crowd. During our Artist Trading Card (ATC) project, each student made 3 cards - one to keep and two to trade. Sam came in the next week with a whole folder full of ATC's that he had designed with clever ideas. It is so exciting to see an idea spark in class, and a student to grow that idea into something of their own. Sam enjoys playing guitar as well as being an artist, and he works hard because he "likes the feeling of being proud."
Here is a photo of his ATC collection, ready for trading, and some other highlights from his portfolio from this year - way to go Sam!
