Project Overview

This watercolor painting was done by a 6th grade student from the Shutesbury Elementary School, in Shutesbury, Massachusetts. Watercolor art was a class-wide study in the classroom, and students took on personal watercolor projects related to the artistic problems they were working on. This student turned this image into a note card, and created sets.

The student who painted this scene went on to study at the Rhode Island School of Design and became a professional glass artist.
