October and November in the Art Room

A Note From Mrs. Wyrick Things have been really hopping in the art room at St. Peter’s!  I feel like I am wiping off tables and cleaning brushes more than usual around here!  I guess that means that there is a lot of art being produced by all of our amazing artists.  I regularly hang […]
