    Figge visit

    5th grade Pop Art at the Figge Museum

    Our fifth grade students got a surprise when they went on their annual trip to the Figge Museum and saw their own artwork was displayed. They worked for two months creating their pop art which is art based on something popular in their culture. That’s how “rubber-band-boozling” came to life.
