Elementary Art Night (Grades 3-5)
OAS ELEMENTARY ART NIGHT
February 16th, 2023
6:00pm - 6:30pm OR 6:45pm - 7:15pm
Express yourself! That’s what OAS Elementary Art Night is all about this year. We are taking inspiration from Street Artist Thank You X’s cube murals, with each student putting their own unique spin on it. Come join us as we step into the world of street art, add a touch of school spirit and create our Wall of Individuality. Each student will be installing their artwork before they leave.
We will have two sessions to accommodate schedules. This is not a drop-off event. A parent or guardian must accompany participating students. RSVPs are needed to ensure we have enough materials. Please use our Google form to RSVP for your child before February 9th. Please submit one form per student.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED. We will need 3 parent volunteers for each of the two sessions. No previous art experience required. Sign up using the link below
