Ben Franklin Elementary School, in Binghamton, NY, decided to make up a fable about how the skunk got it’s stripe. They called on renown storyteller Regi Carpenter to help Ms. Culligan’s class of second graders develop their tale. They called me in to help them make clay tiles to depict their narrative.¬† Here are some pictures of students making the tiles from raw clay, performing their story in front of the whole school and many parents, and of myself,¬† art teacher, Athena Negros, and Enrichment specialist, Jill Browne, and Kate Culligan installing the tiles on the wall of the school.
