Art Experience

January 10, 2020

We need your help with an all-school art project!

I am excited to announce that the Maroa-Forsyth Community Club has awarded the art department funds for an all-school project. After Christmas break, every class will be studying about the ocean during art. Once some research is complete, students will help create an underwater scene using their art skills.

Their ocean creations will be displayed for public viewing sometime in February. More information regarding dates and times will be forthcoming.

The students’ art will be illuminated with special lighting (black lights) so your child’s artwork will ”‘glow-in-the dark.” It is going to be amazing! Since this project requires special supplies to create that “magical glow,” the Community Club has graciously offered to pay for the black lights, neon and fluorescent paints, crayons, oil pastels, modeling compound, etc. We could still use a few supplies that you might have on hand. That’s where we need your help. The following is a list of items that we could use to create our display. We will be starting our ocean project as soon as we return from break. Thanks for all of your help and support. Items can be turned into the art room at any time.
