Morse Mural On Display at Warner Library

Visitors to the Children’s Room at the Warner Library can now view art designed by students from the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns.

During the 2018-2019 school year, first and second graders created a mural which art teacher Jeannette Dietz recently donated to the library.

“I was thrilled when librarian Patricia Cohn accepted the mural to display in the children's library,” said Dietz. “This is an  amazing opportunity for children to see their artwork extend beyond the classroom and into the community.”

The mural features multi-colored dots drawn and colored by students. Dietz was inspired by the book "The Dot" by Peter H. Reynolds. The book tells the story of a little girl named Vashti who goes to art class and doesn't know what to draw.  Her art teacher suggests, "just make a mark and see where it takes you!" 

Morse students’ creativity has taken them far.

Ms. Cohn remarked, “We are excited to display children's artwork at the Warner Library. All art is meant to be seen and shared, to honor the artist and to encourage the viewer. The mural currently on exhibit inspires all of us to express our unique creativity and is a beautiful collective effort that celebrates every child's artistry.”
