Noteworthy Cards Are Here! After a lot of hard work the first series of Noteworthy greeting cards are now finished. As you may remember, Noteworthy is a collaboration between the Anderson Center Transition and Art Departments. All cards in the series are adorned with artwork created by our students and the handling/ packaging will also be completed by students Noteworthy cards will come in packages of eight cards. Each package will contain four different card designs and you will receive two of each card design. The cards measure 4.5x6 inches and are blank inside. Price for each package of Noteworthy cards has yet to be determined, but all money raised from their sale will go to fund various programs at the ACA. Below are pictures of the art chosen for the first series of Noteworthy cards. We hope you like them!

Fall Themed Artwork Spooky Landscapes Fall has come once again to the Hudson Valley and to the ACA Art Room. Students have been hard at work creating a series of seasonal art projects. Brian C. (Rm. 119)

Alexander I. (Rm. 110)

The first, “Spooky Landscapes” show a tree with fall colored leaves and pumpkins. Students used templates to create their trees and fences. They made leaves by ripping paper that they decoupaged with Fall colors. Also, pumpkins were created by using some leftover decoupaged paper.

Additionally, students have been creating these apple decorations. They were made by coloring red construction paper with “apple” colors (i.e. yellow, greens, and red). They then traced an apple shaped template and cut them out. Leaves were created in the same manner, only this time students used “leaf” colors (i.e. yellow and green). All pieces, including a brown construction paper “stem,” were later glued together.
