Throughout the week, Mr. Bataclan, known affectionately as "Mr. B" by the students, engaged with young artists from pre-K through fourth grade. Together, they explored various art techniques and brought their imaginations to life on canvas.

The final unveiling on Thursday afternoon was met with excitement as students saw their pencil drawings transformed into vibrant, colorful masterpieces. The four canvases, painted by both students and faculty, will be permanently displayed on the Mater Campus for the enjoyment of the Sacred Heart community.
