Preschool Masterpieces on Display

"Preschool Masterpieces: Self-Portraits of Boise Children"
Exhibit Dates: April 16-May 14
Curriculum Resource Center - 2nd Floor

Children ages 3-5 in Boise’s Head Start program painted their self-portraits after they studied portraits of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Artworks created in conjunction with the Picturing America project are displayed this month throughout Boise as part of the annual Week of the Young Child celebration. Picturing America was developed by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. This project allowed prints of 40 American masterpieces to be delivered to 20,000 Head Start centers in the U.S. for use in the curriculum. See if you can guess which child wears matching hair bows with her outfit every day. Stop by and view the exhibit!
