Henry County artist Sharon Silvers recently taught a painting lesson to fifth grade students at Eastern Elementary School. The topic this year was “Tropical birds of the rainforest.” Ms. Moore’s class (top) painted tucans, while Ms. Powell’s class painted macaws (below). “The fifth grade students always look forward to this special art activity, which is a first for them and for some, it is their first experience painting with acrylics on canvas board,” Silvers said. Silvers was assisted by Amy Knight, humanities teacher at Eastern. Funding for the annual art project was provided by Eastern Elementary PTO.
