This is a community involvement fundraiser event that I've been planning since last year and it's always something that I've wanted to incorporate into my art program: a fun family art night! Ours will be hosted next month in April where we are collaborating with the culinary arts students who will make a homemade marinara sauce for a spaghetti dinner. Along with the dinner ticket families can make art together. If they would like to make a clay bowl for our next months arthop event: they can purchase the bowl that will be fired and glazed so that they return to have next months arthop event which will be an ice cream social with the bowl they created.
We are hoping that we can collaborate with the middle school art teachers to have the incoming 8th graders artwork displayed as well as welcoming them into the High School environment.
This is all a learning process so this year will be a learning after the event and possibly sharing more later on.
