Last week we had Fine Arts Night at school. It was sensational!
We used a company called Artome. They were absolutely phenomenal to work with. Several weeks before the art show they sent out their formatting paper. I had my students pick their favorite project to glue to the paper. Everything got labeled and put in a big box which was then shipped back to Artome. They framed everything in their warehouse and came and set it up in the gym. It was all very professional and super easy!
Parents and students came and strolled through the gallery. They could purchase the artwork and some of the funds come right back into the Northwood art room! We had an exceptional turn out and everyone also enjoyed the chorus concert that happened that night too.
The best part of the night was schmoozing with parents and meeting my student’s families. I heard from so many parents/guardians how much their child is enjoying art and how excited they are to create stuff. It makes my lil’ art teacherin’ heart glow!
I also made a couple of fun backdrops for “selfie stations.” Next year I plan on incorporating more interactive displays/activities.
Special thank-you to all of the staff who stayed to help with money! And of course to my art teacher pal Alex!
