French lesson at Pleasant Lea

April 12, 2013 

These 1st to 5th graders in Kids Country after-school program at Pleasant Lea Elementary School are part of a pilot project for culture clubs. They’re learning about France, with help from the Summit International Studies Academy. On April 10 the students were studying French Impressionists, painting their own versions of Monet’s Water Lilies. They also played I Spy with impressionist paintings, using French words for the items they were trying to find. Earlier in the week they were visited by four mimes. Clockwise from the left: RJ. Rentie, Isabella Drake, Lauren Karlin, Morgan Trabon, Molly Montgomery (Kids Country staff) Noran Conard and Alyssa Stephenson. The clubs could be expanded to other schools next year.
