The Middle School Art Show went over with flying colors. We had 150 entries from students grades 6-8. There were 6 awards per grade level (1 Golden Brush, 2 Silver Brush and 2 Bronze Brush Awards), as well as Principal’s Choice Awards, Judge’s Choice Award, People’s Choice Award and Aspiring Artist Awards (art supplies instead of cash). Here are the award winners and some of their artwork in the background:
I mailed out multitudes of letters to local businesses/organizations asking for donations, and through that we received $650! We had about $250 in awards, and the rest went towards putting the Art Show together and buying supplies for Art Club. We have some very generous people in our community!
Friday night we had a reception - the meatballs were gone in seconds. Artists were asked to “get fancy,” as this reception was a classy party. The place was packed with students, families and friends. So much fun! Here are some photos from the show:
