Thanks to a grant from the Walentas Family Foundation, PS16 Leonard Dunkley Elementary School is offering "Art is Good" to the entire school throughout the 2013-2014 school year. Every student, plus the Art is Good Club, created over 300 amazing puzzle pieces together.
As the PS16 art teacher, Tim is able to work closely with each artist. Many have never considered how to make meaningful artwork. One student said out loud, "I never thought of who I am".
