Two Stewart Avenue students of art teacher Melissa Pashayan were selected by Anton Newspapers to be featured in its 2014-15 calendar. Third-graders Vanessa Law (pictured at right), who created a winter landscape, and Gabriel Psilakis’s cave art project each received its own month, and were featured on the calendar cover. “It was very exciting to see the students’ artwork in big print,” said Ms. Pashayan. “For the polar bears, the students created a snowy landscape using chalk pastels and then drew their own polar bears. For the cave art project, I demonstrated how to crumple, rip, and paint paper to represent the inside of a cave wall. The students then drew animals on the paper using oil pastels. I am really proud of the work my students created.”
