Some of the students in Mr Ginsberg’s art class at Scott Montgomery Elementary allowed us to share some of their illustrations on the themes of “What I like about Shaw” and “A Day at the Circus.”

One lucky student who took part in the art contest was given tickets to see Cirque du Soleil last November.

The entire class was treated to a catered lunch and cake with Kevin Chapple to show appreciation for their artistic contribution to the community and in order to encourage their creativity and imaginative spirits. Click here if you want to see some very creative work as an example. Those videos are not bad either.
