The William Floyd Learning Center recently welcomed modern pop artist Michael Albert the creator of “Cerealism,” a technique of creating collages made from cereal boxes. The students, working with Mr. Albert, used cerealism to tell a story about themselves – who they are and what they are thankful for, a theme that coincides with the school virtue of the month – gratitude.
Camelle Person, assistant principal, William Floyd Learning Center, arranged for the visit as she has worked with Mr. Albert previously. She felt that it is important for the students to learn that art can play a vital role in providing a voice or a message. “The students had a great time cutting apart recycled cereal and food boxes to make their very own masterpieces,” said Mrs. Person. Mr. Albert left the students with autographed postcards and bookmarks of his artwork and one very important message – “You are what you crEATe!”
