Renowned artist CoRiccio Baskin spent an entire day with the students of Hoover Elementary School. The artistry of CoRiccio Baskin, entitled "Lil' Thangz", was displayed at Hoover during the entire month of February. Students were captivated by the detail put into the miniature replicas.
During an all-school assembly, Mr. Baskin explained to the students how and why he started making the miniatures. He encouraged students to never give up on their dreams and that small ideas can turn into something big. Mr. Baskin conducted workshops throughout the day that allowed students to make their own miniatures.
Hoover Elementary School and the community are extremely appreciative of Mr. CoRiccio for sharing his gift and time with us.
