Party! Party!!Party!!! During the month of March students were hard at work creating party themed paintings that will be used as possible Noteworthy Card designs.
Through the completion of this project, students once again had the opportunity to strengthen their painting, masking, coloring, and collage skills. Students will be continuing these party themed paintings next month.
The artists that created the artwork above: 1. Makaila C. (Rm. 120); 2. Jessica C. (Rm. 119); 3. Margaret A. (Rm. 125).
“Thank You” The Art Department and staff of the ACA received a very nice e-mail from the mother of Alexander “Sasha” I. (Rm. 110) thanking us for our support of her son and for ―Sasha‖ being chosen as “Art Star” for the month of February. Her kind words were very much appreciated!! Thanks!!
