What’s Coming Home?

December 16, 2020 | Clara Buckley

I wonder what your child has made using these tools and materials?

First, we rolled.

Then we flattened and made impressions of a real pine tree cutting.

Painted using two techniques.

Hung and admired.

With all these steps, it took more than a week to create the Jesse Tree ornaments! We hope you find a space to hang it in your home.

Clara Buckley

Teacher, Rivers Class; Middle School Art

Clara Buckley’s teaching spans the ages of Mustard Seed School, from the youngest students in the preschool to students in the graduating class. She’s found many similarities between teaching three-year-olds and thirteen-year-olds!

As an art teacher who never enjoyed drawing, Ms Buckley’s hope is that each child she teaches discovers a way to create art that they enjoy, whether it be sculpture, printing, textiles, architectural drawing, or collage.

Ms. Buckley loves living in Jersey City, a place whose diversity and welcome for immigrants reflects her own family experience. When planning future travel destinations, art, food, and time with family are featured items on her list.
