In this drawing, Sylvia Spicuzza presents us with something of a self portrait, showing an instructor at the head of a classroom, her students looking forward intently. Sylvia herself was devoted to teaching art to the students of Lake Bluff Elementary School in Shorewood, WI. During this time Sylvia produced a magnificent body of work that was undiscovered until her death. This work is an excellent illustration of the ideal classroom, and the instructor is surrounded by the tools of her trade. 5.63 x 4.75 inches, artwork 14.13 x 13.13 inches, frame Signature stamp, lower right
