Artists in the Beech Tree Room

Over the past several weeks, Beech Tree friends have found it fun to hide underneath the tables. Teachers have utilized this interest by creating an easel on the underside of the table. Teachers first displayed a picture of Michelangelo's painting of the Sistine Chapel. Teachers explained that he spent years laying on his back to create this piece. 

Beech Tree friends were given various art mediums to test on the horizontal easel. BT friends were a little confused by this invitation at first, but eventually had a hard time moving from this space. Working on a space like this offers a chance to help strengthen arm and shoulder muscles in a very unusual way.
