A Sense of Self

We stumbled on the Green Flea last weekend at MS 44 Junior High School on the Upper West Side. While we weren't very impressed with the "antique market," the collection of student's art along the hallways was inspiring--especially their collection of self-portraits. Will they become the next Warhol or Picasso?
