When Saints Peter & Paul elementary and middle school art teacher, Rebecca Wheatley, had the idea to introduce her students to the "goal of innovation", she was not thinking about recognition. But recognition is what she has received as the nationally acclaimed Arts &Activities Magazine has featured Wheatley's sculpture in their May 2017 issue. The article is entitled Demonstrating Innovation Through Lighted Sculpture and speaks of the 8-foot high sculpture called Metamorphosis which took six months to create.
Students are "extremely proud of their effort and focus on this collaborative activity for the school and community." Editor and Publisher of Arts & Activities Magazine, Maryellen Bridge, sent the following:
"We enjoyed working with you, and hope you had a positive experience working with us. We look forward to hearing from you again, and hope you will share more of your successful lessons and projects with us in the future! All of us here at Art & Activities Magazine thank you for the important part you played in the success of this issue."
