MMS Art Club

Dearest Murphy Art Patrons,

Art club is in need of your help. We are learning about rococo art, and are creating powdered wigs. We are reaching out for donations of cotton balls and toilet paper rolls, only the cardboard roll not with all the paper, for our project. You can drop donations off at Mr. Adams’ art room B118 anytime during the school day. We thank you for your patronage, as we look to realize our inner Marie Antoinettes.
