Superheroes are coming to Onondaga Community College’s Coulter Library! They’re being created by 4th grade students at Syracuse’s McKinley-Brighton Elementary School.
Meredith Cantor-Feller, OCC’s Interim Dean of Visual, Performing & Applied Arts visited McKinley-Brighton December 5 and worked with two dozen students on the superhero project. She handed out construction paper and pencils, asked students to list five qualities a superhero should have then draw their superhero. At the end of class Cantor-Feller collected their artwork. The best drawings will be framed and hung in the children’s book section of the newly renovated Coulter Library at OCC.
You can see students outstanding work in the slideshow below.
The creation of superheroes is the product of a partnership between McKinley-Brighton and Onondaga Community College aimed at helping students. OCC Administrators have also worked with students on journal making and qualities which make outstanding leaders.
