Ms. Kelley, high school art teacher, tweaked her first Studio in Art project of the school year which would normally be a self-portrait collage. Instead the students created COVID-19 mask self-portrait collages to reflect the fact that we are all experiencing a global pandemic. The students chose magazine items that reflected their personality and collaged them to create a COVID-19 mask. Ms. Kelley teaches Studio in Art at the Orchard Park High School. Studio in Art is the prerequisite introductory art course at the high school level.
