Art Show Details

The 2016 Art Show Celebration will be Tuesday, May 3rd from 6:30pm-8:00pm. The purpose of our student art show is to celebrate your child’s accomplishments in the visual arts. I believe the fine arts are an essential component of education, because they nurture our 21st century learners. Chances are your child will be employed in a field where creative thinking is needed. The skills students learn in art class will help them succeed in their future. Research, planning, problem solving, dedication to the task, craftsmanship, time management, and meeting deadlines are skills reinforced in art class and used daily in the workforce. Therefore, I welcome your support in your child’s artistic achievements and hope you will be able to join in the celebration.

Attendance to the show does not require you to purchase your child’s artwork. However, a percentage of the funds raised will support the Forest Vista Art Room. Unsold artwork will be returned to your child, but it will not be framed.

If you are interested in purchasing your child’s professionally matted and framed artwork, you may reserve the work before the show.

· Reservations will start April 25th and end May 2nd
· Payments will not be accepted before April 25th

· Each artwork will be $27
· Make checks payable to Forest Vista Elementary School
