As the Lead Art Teacher at Margaret Brent, I collaborated with teachers and students to design and paint the Ben Carson Reading Room at Margaret Brent Elementary Middle School. The theme of the room, ” Branching Out with Books,” depicts a natural landscape for students and teachers to relax with a good book. Ten talented Middle School students spent several afternoon sessions painting the surrounding walls. They were eager to use bright colors and bring the room to life. Everyone worked well together and we are looking forward to the formal opening on November 4!
On November 4 at 1:30 p.m., Margaret Brent Elementary/Middle School in Charles Village will open its brand-new Ben Carson Reading Room. Funded by a $10,000 grant from the Carson Scholars Fund, the room will create a nurturing atmosphere for students to expand their horizons and develop reading skills. The students and their art teacher have filled it with bright and colorful artwork and hundreds of books of all genres, topics, and authors.
