ELEMENTARY ART NIGHT

We are very excited to bring back Art Night! Please join us on Jan. 12th from 6:30-7:30pm for an evening of art! The students will have an amazing opportunity to leave their mark on a permanent art installation at OAS. They will be creating personalized tiles inspired by their favorite book to be installed later as a permanent mosaic.


RSVPs are needed to ensure we have enough materials. Please use this Google form to RSVP for your child before January 3rd, 2022.

Students will work on the project in their individual classrooms. Volunteers are needed to help supervise the art project. No art experience necessary! Please use this link to sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090d4daca62eabfd0-elementary
