A special gift presented to Hiawatha Elementary School Principal Kathleen O’Farrell and art teacher Nicole Healey recently sparked a special conversation about the intricacies of pencil drawing with students in art class. 

Yvonne Pineiro, a grandmother of two Hiawatha students and a local artist, presented the school with a detailed pencil drawing of the school’s mascot, the Hiawatha Husky. Pineiro was inspired to draw the husky because of her grandchildren’s love for their school.

Ms. Healey has put the drawing on display in the art room and has used the work to educate each grade level on the art of pencil drawing and the level of difficulty associated with the medium.
