Art students from Babylon Memorial Grade School recently visited students at Babylon Junior-Senior High School for a “Portrait Swap” event, in which the students created beautiful portraits in various formats based on a photograph and various personality traits provided by the students.

Utilizing their creative talents, students of both schools were able to transform words and photos into artwork as they digitally recreated, illustrated or used bits of magazine paper to formulate facial structures resembling their “swap” buddy.

Additionally, the upperclassmen assisted the younger students in a collaborative springtime art project in which they drew scenes consisting of flowers, sunshine and blue skies.
