Art Show

The Walnut Acres Parent Faculty Club presents Art Show 2017!

On Thursday, April 20th, 2017 the Multi-Use Room will be transformed into a Museum of Modern Art, showcasing artwork from all grades at Walnut Acres Elementary.  This is a non-competitive and non-fundraising event and every student is encouraged to participate. We are looking forward to another successful event this year.

Students will tour the “museum” with their classes at scheduled times during school hours on Thursday, April 20th.  Parents, family and friends are invited to attend a reception for the artists from 6:00-8:00 p.m. that evening.  All artwork will be returned to the students.

Please note the following important dates:

Monday, March 27th            Last day to submit entry forms (see link below)

Wednesday, April 19th        Final artwork delivered to the MUR before school

Thursday, April 14th            Art Show gallery tours and reception

Every student who is interested may enter one piece of art in addition to participating in a class project. This is an optional event unless your teacher makes it a class assignment.

**IMPORTANT CHANGE THIS YEAR: Artwork will be need to be delivered to the MUR (not the classrooms)- no later than Wednesday April 19th. 

On Wednesday, April 19th, the Art Show volunteers will prepare the MUR and display all art pieces for the show on Thursday, April 20th.   Last minute entries will be accepted after school on Wednesday in the MUR but only if they have previously submitted an entry form by the March 27th deadline.

Interested families should read the guidelines that follow and turn in a completed entry form no later than Monday, March 27th.   All kinds of artwork is welcome:  painting/drawing, sculpture, mixed-media, computer art or dioramas. Use your imagination!  Consider collaborating with a few friends on a group project!

As with many school activities, this event is run by parent volunteers.  There are many opportunities to participate, even in small ways.  Parents, please contact me if you would like to volunteer, or if you have any questions.
