  • Art Project Brings Feel Good Surprise

    This week, Upper School art teacher Susan Brodie assigned a fun papier mache project for some of her students. They were to create a sculpture out of papier mache that will later have to be painted. As students worked on theirs at home, Susan, in true Tandem teacher fashion, created one of her own at home. She chose to make a papier mache bunny. As she dipped random strips of newspaper into her gluey paste, she suddenly noticed that the piece she had placed right over the bunny's heart just happened to say Tandem Friends School - it was a piece of a color ad that was in Susan's pile of strips. This warmed Susan's heart and seemed a wonderful and ironic surprise to share.
