Guest artist Kim Phillips visits Religious School November 18.  Our library gallery is currently hosting a beautiful exhibit of cut paper art by Kim Phillips.  We are so very fortunate that Ms. Phillips will do a workshop with our students.  These artist workshops greatly enrich our students.  We appreciate the efforts of Shelley Mangold and her gallery committee for making this workshop with Ms. Phillips possible. We look forward to displaying our students’ work for all to see.
