Thanks to art specialist and teacher Mary Lou Walter, students at Clayville Elementary School in Clayville and North Scituate Elementary School in North Scituate now have an art class every week, twice as often as in the past. Her fine-arts curriculum gives students a solid foundation for creativity and critical thinking. Students also learn to use presentation and graphics software, and maintain electronic portfolios of their work. She recently assisted students at Clayville in designing and painting a mural depicting events from local history. Together with North Scituate's Parent-Teacher Organization, she helps produce the school's popular annual Children's Art Show. Mrs. Walter frequently brings visiting artists to speak at Scituate's schools.
