Auction sneak peak!

Our High Shoals Elementary School Family Art Night is THIS Thursday from 5:00-7:00! I am very excited to share all the beautiful art that our young artists at HSES have created throughout the year. It is a lot of work but it is definitely a labor of love. I am trying something a little different this year in an attempt to raise a little money for my art room. I desperately need a new drying rack, among other things. I am having a silent auction at the art show! Each homeroom made a collaborative piece of art on canvas and parents can try to win them by being the highest bidder. I am excited to see how this new venture goes over. Here is a little sneak peak at some of the projects. Check back next weeks for art show pictures!

March is Youth Art Month!

We had our opening reception for the Oconee County Youth Art Month exhibit yesterday. Each school in our county submits 12 pieces of art for the show. I have shared some of these projects here on my blog and some are new. The kids were excited to see their work hanging in a real art gallery...and there were cookies to eat. They probably loved that the most!
