    Fine Arts Night: “Not just for the birds”

    Date: May 15, 2018

    Time: 4:30 to 7:00 pm (keeping in mind of after school activities in certain areas at school)

    This year’s auction item: Birdhouses, to be auctioned off at the Fine Arts Night event. 

    Birdhouses and art work:

    • Birdhouses will be put out in the main hallway the week before Fine Arts Night.
    • Volunteers or teachers, please pick out some pieces of art your student’s have created throughout the year, and hang them in the hallways. We will also offer the lunch tables, standing upright to hang art. These would be great for those classes in the modules, and extra space for those who need to showcase more pieces. These won’t be available though until after lunch time May 15th.

    Additional elements of Fine Arts Night:

    • Another school art challenge “Kids of a Feather” has been distributed with directions. Extra copies are located in the art room and in the teacher’s lounge. This challenge will be displayed at Fine Arts Night, not to mention, make a fabulous photo opportunity! We need more feathers! The kids could do these as something to do after testing, or as an art project!
    • Come see your child’s displayed artwork that they’ve created throughout the year.
    • A special spot will be dedicated to those students who would like to showcase their own individual pieces.
    • Finally, another fun element that the Husky Arts Team is putting together is a selection of hands on art stations. Different art techniques with assistance will be a fun addition for both students and their families. Tickets for purchase will be available to participate at these art stations.
    • Snacks for purchase will be available.

    Lastly, we need your help to make this fun event a success! Closer to the event, a volunteer SignUpGenius page will be set up for specific volunteer spots at this event.

    We’re looking forward to a fun evening of art, The Husky Arts Team!
