 3rd Grade Classes are taking part in the Barnes Foundation "Pictures and Words" Program! 

Pictures and Words is a multidisciplinary program offered to 2,500 primary students annually. Developed with input from district teachers and administrators, the program integrates works of art in the Barnes collection with lessons and activities that reinforce Pennsylvania Common Core State Standards for English and Language Arts. The program teaches students about the narratives behind paintings in the Barnes collection and invites students to respond to what they have learned with their own creative storytelling/writing, poetry, and art.
