WIND BENEATH OUR WINGS

A new work of art is on display at Washington. The art was created by the Kindergarten students and given to the school during an unveiling ceremony last week.

Each student made two drawings of feathers in their classrooms. Then all of the kindergarten artists met together to combine more than 160 feather drawings to create this work of art: a big pair of eagle wings. It is titled “Wind Beneath Our Wings” because Washington School gives students the knowledge to soar…just as the wind does for eagles.

It was created as part of the Arts at Washington program funded by the P.T.A. Every year one grade level has a visiting artist come to the classrooms for specialized art instruction.  Artist and Washington Parent, Kim Walker Ray, is instructing the kindergarten classes. The wing art was the first of three sessions this spring.

Wind Beneath Our Wings” will be on display in the hallways for a few weeks before it moves to a permanent location in the gym.
