Spring

Story of the artwork

Henry attends preschool at Helping Hands Preschool in Medina, Ohio. At preschool, with the help of his teachers Mrs. Good and Mr. B, Henry created this artwork with paint. He made this artwork with spring colors when he was learning about the seasons and weather with all of his friends at school. We are so lucky to have Mr. B and Mrs. Good in Henry's life! They are so patient and kind, and they help him learn and experience things alongside his friends at school.

Henry completed this artwork in collaboration with his pre-school teachers, Mrs Good and Mr B Henry.
