Super Kids Working Together!
superheroA few 2nd and 3rd Grade students at MES have had the opportunity to have their artwork showcased at Mauldin Cultural Center from March 16th - March 30th.  A closing reception will be held on March 30th from 5 to 7pm at the Mauldin Cultural Center.  Read more about the art show below:

Working together with someone to create art is always an amazing experience.  With the help of their teachers, 2nd and 3rd grade students from Mauldin Elementary were able to collaborate on this art project with students in Art 2, 3, and 4 at Mauldin High School.  Art Educator Justin Thompson from Mauldin High School started this collaborative process, and Art Educators Jenny Haught and Kim Wix from Mauldin Elementary were happy to join.  The 2nd and 3rd grade students were tasked with creating their own Superhero.  It had to be something new and original from their imagination.  The elementary students had a blast creating their Superheroes, and even writing stories about them.  Then, the artwork was sent over to Mauldin High, where the art students there used the elementary work as their inspiration.  The high school students were free to use any media and express their creativity in recreating these Superhero pieces.  We are so proud of the work our students have done, and we hope you enjoy this show as much as we enjoyed creating it.
