During quarantine, bored & creative folks from around the world got busy one-upping each other in efforts to re-create famous works of art using just household supplies at hand. For a year-end art project at school, Hen & Mom-O got busy making this “portrait of the flautist as a young man.” 🎼😌
One of Henry’s final assignments for the year was his 5th Grade State Report – which included research, a written report, and a very small “parade float” showcasing the information he learned about the state. Of course, our man chose his favorite state, Utah, meeting point of the Transcontinental Railroad. And, because he is in the bilingual program, all of his material was written and delivered in Spanish.
You’ll see that he included a railroad car and tracks on top of his float, commemorating the link up of the Transcontinental Railroad, as well things like the state flag, seal, and information about wildlife and interesting Utah natives (including Butch Cassidy!).
Here’s the video we recorded and turned in along with the written report.
