Every year I volunteer for the class Shades of Blue project. Today we met with Matty’s class so each child could assemble their piece. His class project this year is a piece of abstract art that will hang on the wall. Each child was given a ball of model clay, they smashed it down, and then adorned it with a few of their favorite things from home that represent that child. Matty took in: a minion, a lego guy on a car, a GI Joe mini figure, a small soccer ball sticker, etc. Once the pieces dry Erica is going to mount them on canvas with a navy square in the middle. So far, it sounds and looks pretty awesome.
