ART NEWS

On March 3 from 4-7pm Silverdale and ARTOME will have an art show here at school. All students (except ones who have moved to our school recently and/or students who were absent when we created the projects) will have a work of art in the show. Their work will be matted and framed. The artwork can be purchased (check or cash) during our event. If you need two copies framed it can be ordered on that night. Framed and matted artwork will be $22.00. If you have any questions, or need to know if your child created a work, please email me at leeann.doss@onslow.k12.nc.us Thank you!
