2nd grade class at P.S 15 exhibits their "Bearology" project.

The whole 2nd grade of Red Hook's P.S.15 recently did a project researching bears called "Bearology" which they showed in the gallery. They researched bears, wrote informational booklets, created a 'Great Hall of Bears' in their school, and painted watercolors showing bears in their habitat. The watercere exhibited at urban Folk Art Gallery for 2 weeks, and the students got to come see their w displayed in a gallery setting. While researching, the bears they realized they ere an endangered species, so they left a donation jar and raised close to $100 to support the endangered animals! The work was awesome and received very well from people who knew the work was here and people just walking by alike. Great job, guys!

Donation Jar, thanks to all who donated to the bears!
