Students design Christmas ornaments

One Fort Colville Elementary School third grade class was chosen to create ornaments for the Washington state Governor’s Mansion Christmas tree. Sarah Franko’s students partnered with high schoolers from Tracey Delyea’s drawing class to make the ornaments representing this years theme, musical instruments. Delyea and her class came up with the guitar prototype, which they then taught to the third-graders. Delyea described the ornaments as guitars morphed from Pablo Picasso’s Blue Period.
