Much like the illustrations in the popular teen read Wonder, there are no eyes in the self-portrait Shainelle Bailey '25 chose to put on display at this week's Lower School Art Show. Nor is there a nose, or cheeks - but the words framing her face is all the fifth grader needs to describe who she is and why she's special.
"I'm kind, adventurous, loving and maybe a little bit crazy," she observed. "It doesn't matter what I look like on the outside. It's what's inside that counts, and the kind of person that I am. You can never judge a book by it's cover."
Thanks to Lower School art teacher Amanda Smith for engaging students in this empowering exercise, and for giving parents the chance to understand how our children see themselves, and their peers around them. What aWonder-ful show!
