Bi-Cultural Day School put the finishing touches on the academic year with a unique art show that lined the corridors of the Stamford school. Guided by art teacher Pat Wetzler, Bi-Cultural students produced works of art reflecting the style of world-renowned artists, with each grade “adopting” a different artist to emulate. Kindergartners drew abstracts, a la Jackson Pollock; first graders, the waterlilies of Monet; second graders, the abstracts of Kandinsky; third graders, the sunflowers of Van Gogh; fourth graders, the flowers of O’Keeffe; fifth graders, the pointillism of Seurat; sixth graders, the Cubism of Mondrian; seventh graders, the papercuts of Matisse; and eighth graders, the faces of Picasso.
