The style became popular in the 1970s and 1980s, pioneered by the Popper Mark Benson aka 'King Boogaloo Tut'
Shout out to Mrs. Cerone's ELT class. They painted beautiful tropical scenes on Friday. With the state tests over the class engaged in some SEL activities starting with Art. These scenes were created by the children when asked: What scene brings peace and relaxation to mind.
