The new year at Northwest Elementary School in the Amityville Union Free School District began with a building-wide art project. Under the direction of art teacher Lydia Robinson, students in first through third grades decorated small paper clouds.

Each child was asked to include their name, a self-portrait and drawings that reflect their likes and interests. The approximately 700 colorful paper clouds were hung on the wall outside the art room surrounding the phrase, “Art is like a dream and we are the dreamers.”   

“I wanted to give every student a chance to get their work on the wall at the beginning of the year,” Ms. Robinson said. “They really enjoyed doing this project.”
