Last week the Butterworth Center hosted the Moline Elementary Art Show. Young artists from each of our elementary schools had their artwork on display in this historic house.
Congratulations to Washington artists Savannah W., Annika Z., Taylor L., Alyson B., Chelsey M., Emily Finley., Brayden P., Brooke J., and Aliza P.
We are participating in a pilot fundraising program from Artsonia to help get an iPad for the Art Room! Information goes home this Thursday so be sure and look it over. The information card has easy instructions on how you can order items with your child's artwork on it. Artsonia sent us some samples of the four different things they are selling for this special program and the students were very excited to see them. Take a look outside the office for these samples when you visit the school.
This special fundraiser goes until May 15th and all of it is handled online. Nothing has to be returned to school. You can pass the information on to other relatives so that they too might help out by purchasing items. 25% of the sales until May 15th goes toward an iPad. There are so many wonderful creative things we can do in Art with iPads - See my iPads in the Art Room Website - It's a great opportunity to combine Art and Technology!!
Please help us out an purchase an item with your child's artwork on it. Your child's face will beam with pride when they see their own artwork on a coffe cup, magnet, greeting card, or necklace!
Washington has been my "Home" school for many years now. I enjoy teaching all the different students who make up this diverse school. I have taught a multitude of lessons in this building and have learned just as much from all of the students.
