"Sylvia asks questions during the presentation and makes connections to artists she knows. She never completely follows along, but she does make it her own. She also creates names for the objects in her art. For example, she started the idea of naming the birds during the Frida Kahlo art lesson."

- Ms. Escobar, Sylvia’s teacher at Mammoth Elementary
