Jefferson Artist in Residence

Our Artist in Residence Breakfast was a success! We have a lot of talented and dedicated students at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School and we were happy to celebrate their successes with the community.

We would like to thank Ms. Silvia Abbato, Superintendent of Schools for her support of the Thomas Jefferson Elementary Art Program and Mr. Anthony Dragona, the UCBOE Business Administrator for attending our Artist Breakfast.

This year, Mr. Kevin Brooks returned to Thomas Jefferson to work with a select group of 4th grade students. Together they created a series of large collages on the history of Union City, NJ. Here is a link to the Kevin Brooks Collage Project

In addition, Thomas Jefferson held an Art After School Program with a select group of 3rd and 4th graders. With my guidance, the students created a large-scale mural in the cafeteria.
