MLK Paint Nights
Martin Luther King Elementary school participated in two zoom “Family Paint Nights” hosted by Ms. Franco one of Hanford Elementary School Districts Art Teachers. Students and their parents signed up for the event in advance. They picked up goodie bags prior to the paint night with the needed art materials and a sweet treat to enjoy. The roughly, 180 participants from both paint night had smiles from ear to ear and truly enjoyed themselves. The first two were such a hit, that two more zoom “Family Paint Nights” are scheduled for Spring 2021.

Akers Art Projects
Students of each grade level produced posters to promote the use of electric vehicles as a contribution to environmental improvements. Some students entered their work in an official contest that was organized by Clean Vehicle Empowerment Commission of the Central Valley.
The students of various grade levels also tried what was called the realism challenge. Students were to hand pick their leaf as a subject. Colored pencil was encouraged but other media was acceptable as well.
Finally, students created mud paintings. Students diluted mud to use as a cost friendly alternative manufactured paints and also practice the element of value.
