The two displays of student art work at Christmas were very much appreciated by those who saw them in the lobby of Christiana Homeschool Academy. It was a joy for me to observe the discussions people had about the student art. It is always a delight for Diana and I to see what students create […]

In contrast, “Sunrise at Assateague” has two ponies […]
