Longfellow Elementary art teacher Sally Tameler encourages students to use their imaginations and incorporate different media when creating their artwork. Students learn the basic elements of art including color, form, shape and texture. Projects vary depending on what each grade level is studying at the time.

Longfellow students attend art class with Tameler at least once each week. When asked what she enjoyed most about teaching elementary art, Tameler said, "Many kids struggle with academics, but in art all students can see success."

Showcasing the artwork of local children is part of the hospital's mission to create a healing environment. For more information about art exhibits at HRRMC, contact Marji Ackermann at 530-2217.
