Young Artists Display Their Work
Students at the JCC Blaustein Early Childhood Center proudly welcomed parents and guests to their annual Art Show on Tuesday May 21. This year’s theme centered around Judaic heritage and culture, with each class selecting a specific theme to inspire their projects. The beautifully decorated walls featured the Jerusalem Skyline, Noah’s Ark, the Tu B’Shvat ecological celebration and more. In this photo Debbie, Hailey and Joshua Baron (of Hillsborough) gather around the 3 year old class’ depiction of Jerusalem. Joshua, a student in the 4 year old class, and his classmates each created a colorful “doll” of themselves to place in front of the class’ illustration of the Western Wall. As a creative touch, the students were able to “price” their paintings; the amounts ranged from $1 to $1 million! The students raised nearly $400 which was allocated to The JCC Scholarship Fund. The Art Show took more than six weeks to plan, create, and finalize, ultimately resulting in a charming display of dedication and creativity by the students.
