I know you didn’t forget, because how could you?

Still want to help, but haven’t gotten a moment to sign up? SIGN UP HERE TO HELP! Especially taking the show down….bring your kids! They can help too!
Here are some frequently asked questions about the Art Show:
What will it be like?
The Art show is the best day! We get to celebrate all the hard work your kiddos have done in creating, making mistakes, reflecting on our progress and learning all along the way! Each area will have a guided question to help you engage with the artist about the process!
Our art show is all about authenticity...YOUR kids make the work to their best of their ability, they choose their work they are the most proud of, your kids sign and frame the work and prepare for the show! I am proud to act as their creative director for the big exhibit 🙂
How many pieces of art at the art show?
There are 2 pieces per kid, one 2-dimensional and one 3-dimensional. Each child chose their own piece, and this results in approximately 1,000 works of art on display!
When do we get our artwork back?
After the art show, kids get ALL their artwork back….don’t you fret 🙂
Can we touch our own artwork?
Please do not. Younger kids get confused if they see kids touch and think it is okay. Be a role model!
How do I know what grade is which?
Do you know our school-wide color coded system?
Each grade is color coded by frame color:
Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade, 4th Grade, 5th Grade
And, finally, just in case you didn’t know how to act at an art show :), the good news is that the children have gone over some of the expectations. Here are their reminders:
That is right- your kids reminded us all how to be respectful (not to run, not to touch (even if it is your own!), no food or drippy drinks, don’t use your cell phone in the art show- that one surprised me!), and please be respectful with kind words- THEY NAILED IT! 🙂
Your kids rock.
