The concept of the Fine Arts Night is:
- to expose students and their families to artists and performers processes and techniques.
- to enhance the learning experience students have in their art and music classroom.
- to encourage a strong connection between parents and their child’s school.
The Fine Arts Night (F.A.N.) will be held Feb. 11th from 6-7:30 p.m.
We are looking for musicians and artist to volunteer their time for the 1 1/2 program. Specifically, we'd like to bring a printmaker, paper making and glass torch artist into this event to discuss process, technique and medium. Students and their families can roam from room to room and meet the various artists to see a demo and possibly do a hands on activity related to what they've seen from the artist. Given the time frame it would be approx. 10 min. for each demo. As this is an evening geared for elementary students (K-5) and their families I am asking for participants that work well with kids.
We would welcome any suggestions from Lawrence Street Gallery of artists that would be interested in participating. This event is being sponsored by the PTA, which is a non profit, and any contribution could be tax deductible.
Thanks for your time, I look forward to hearing from you.
