Students recreate Nieto-inspired works
Second-grade art students at Lakeland studied the art of Native American artist John Nieto. They then tried their hands at recreating their own Nieto-inspired works. The class sent a photo of their work to Nieto and was thrilled when the artist responded with pleasure and gratitude.
