Bella Via Italian Street Painting Festival

The kids' elementary school, Valley View, h
olds an annual "Bella Via Italian Street Painting Festival" during which the kids recreate famous pieces of art in chalk on the blacktop, and the kids' artwork is displayed in the cafeteria. Here are the pictures I thought were particularly nice, including the ones AJ and Michael helped create.

AJ's picture: Henry and Mudge. Michael's picture: Birch Trees

AJ's class created this picture

The first picture is one of the book Michael created with his descriptions of the sound of color.
The other two pictures are of the artwork his class recreated.
