T SHIRT TAKE OFF!!
Students have been working their little behinds off dreaming up the most fabulous Walkin' The Tightrope T-shirt they can think of. At the Marshall we have a strong English Language Learners program, some of whom I have the pleasure to teach in art class. Since Spanish is a first language to many of my artists, I thought it would be cool to incorporate Spanish culture into our T-shirt contest. All of my students- English or non-English speaking, have the option to design a "Walkin' The Tightrope" T, or a "Caminando La Soga" T
.3 shirts will be chosen by Karmaloop.com to be put into production and sold on their website.
