  1. Great Altered Books! I am going to try to do a project like this next year with my students 6-8th. Can you give me any hints on how to get them started? Are there any good resources you would recommend?

    I am thrilled with ms savarese! I have never seen such an enthusiastic art teacher! My child loves this class! Thank you so much for giving of your talents so that others may grow and learn!

  3. Mrs Savarese is extraordinary!! She makes the class FUN, comfortable, chill. The environment is Great, and Sav tends to tell the students how talented they are, so Look who taught them! It takes an artist to know an artist and She and All the students are talented. The kids that didnt choose to be in her class, that ended up in it, just got lucky!! So to them and the other kids: Take advantage of the time you have in her class, because in the End it’ll all be worth it and I can promise you Will learn something from her, something unforgettably positive. Mrs Sav is PEACE that spreads like wild fire!! Her spirit is bright, and she is a person you want to be around So you students best get along with her!
