As part of an interdisciplinary social studies project, fourth graders at Riley Avenue Elementary School have been engaged in painting New York’s majestic mountains.

The students are currently learning about New York’s history and geography as part of a social studies unit in class. To reinforce the lessons, art teacher Melissa Haupt tied in the art component. Using Georgia O’Keeffe’s work as inspiration, the students are creating paintings of colorful mountain ranges using watercolor crayons during their art classes.
