On the art room floor inside Brooklyn’s Hannah Senesh Community Day School a group of 5-year-olds are squatting around an enormous canvas, collectively coloring in the outline of a house, grass, sky and flowers with broad brushstrokes of tempera paint. While they work, a teacher points to their thick paintbrushes and quizzes the children about what colors they are using: “What color is the sky? Blue. Yes, blue. The sky is blue. And what about the grass? Green. Right, green.”
