On Tuesday, October 21st, Friedman students convened in the Jaharis Cafe for some much-needed relaxation and an opportunity to wax their creative sides. The Friedman Sprout was there to document both the creativity and merriment of the occasion.

Decoupage is a fancy French term for cutting out pictures from magazines and brushing globs of glue on them. Hi, kindergarten. We’ve missed you.

Well-attended, the celebration ushered in mid-term season at Friedman and offered a much-appreciated respite from studying.

Perhaps some Friedman students found their callings in the art of pumpkin decorating.
