It seems like it’s been raining all month so far, at least in art class! When special events come, they seem to come in droves!
This past Saturday, our Harmar 5th graders were among the featured artists at the Empty Bowls luncheon at the 1st Congregational Church held to benefit our local food pantry. Here are a few glimpses of the event as it wound down. I was too wound up to take them at the beginning of all the excitement.
This week the “Big To-Do” (and hopefully you’ll put it on your list to attend) is the district-wide Fine Arts Festival. On Thursday, April 10 from 5:30-8:30 PM at the High School, students from grades 1-12 will have selected artworks exhibited in the gymnasium while musical performances from all of the schools take place in the auditorium. Is an evening to celebrate the arts and our young artists. Students have been notified if they have had pieces selected in the show and school-wide reminder announcements will be made later in the week. Please note, if your artist has work in the show, s/he needs to check-in with me at the front table to receive their name tag. I hope you’ll join us for this year’s Fine Arts Festival this week.
Another little project going on is coming due this week, too. The 4th graders at both schools have created artwork based on the weighty theme of “addiction” to be entered anonymously into a contest called Global Dialogues to help address issues that are tough for young people to talk about and hopefully bring about positive change.
Okay, last shameless plug, I promise:
Fine Arts Festival, this Thursday, 5:30PM, High School. Join us!
See you there,
