PS 230 students learn "The Art of the Brick" with Mr. Nathan Sawaya
In late August, Ms. Brill created a Donors Choose page seeking art supplies for her second and third grade students. Who should respond but Nathan Sawaya, the Lego artist best known for his recent exhibition "The Art of the Brick." During the first week of school, Mr. Sawaya met with students in Ms. Brill's art class, told them the story of how he became a lego artist and showed them examples of some of his masterpieces! The children were fascinated, and then delighted to discover that Mr. Sawaya had also brought boxes of art supplies for their classroom.

Congratulations, Ms. Brill! And, Thank You to the Lego Master, Mr. Nathan Sawaya.
