Students of the Catholic Charities Therese Cervini Early Childhood Development Center in Flushing, Queens recently hosted their in-school art series: Art Studio with Mr. Harlem. Our students perfected their molding clay skills as they strengthened their sensory experience and fine and major motor skills. Our students had a blast exploring their artistic abilities while bonding with classmates.
