6th graders did a walking tour of Ft. Greene brownstones, and all were amazed at the incredible architecture and detail they had never really noticed before!  Afterwards, they sculpted their own brownstone out of clay. 
"Pic(ture) of the week" shines some light on the powerful learning that is happening, each and every day, inside of our classrooms.  Just an image and a caption.  Short and simple. 

View the spectacular work that Visual Arts concentration students are doing with Ms. Bennett! Check out the Arts & Letters Photography class Flickr page, below. Some of these photos have already been featured by The Local, the Fort Greene/Clinton Hill New York Times blog!
