This past winter, the Senior Ethics class visited The Coachman, a family shelter in White Plains. The Sunday School students helped the children living at the shelter make dream catchers. They used twigs, yarn, feathers, beads and plastic jewels to make their artistic creations. Afterwards, they shared snacks and beverages together. It was a great way to spend a winter afternoon.

The Society’s annual Arts Festival provided the inspriation for the topics discussed in our recent Junior Ethics class. We have read the books Emily’s Art (by Peter Catalanotto), the dot, and ish (both by Peter H. Reynolds), and When Pigasso met Mootisse (Nina Laden). Our discussions have included big philosophical topics such as “What is Art?”, “Evaluating Art” and “Art Expertise”, as well as the nature of contests, perfectionism, friendship and conflict resolution raised in the stories we’ve read. Naturally, we have made some Art ourselves, which you can see some of on our Sunday School bulletin board!
