“The Giving Tree” Mural

Our students were inspired by the book “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein last year to create this mural for the school library. Each student designed a circle for the background of the tree by drawing, painting, stitching, or beading on a piece of felt. They used their own talent or gift as the theme for their circle. Visit the library to see it!

Brazee Street Studios Field Trip


The Art Club will be visiting Brazee Street Studios in Oakley on Friday, November 14th, 5:00 – 8:30 pm. We are also inviting Non-Art Club students and parents to join us! Students not in Art Club will need to pay $5 to help cover the cost of the bus. Parent chaperones are free. A signed permission form is required. Extra forms are available in the Art room or see attached permission form below.


Calling All 8th Grade Artists

This year the Scholastic Art competition deadline is much earlier than in the past. In order to give second semester eighth grade Art students the opportunity to enter the competition we are offering an “extra” Art project to eighth grade students who are taking Art second semester only. The project will be presented to a group of interested students. The project will then be completed by the students on their own time. There will be work sessions available during 8th grade lunch times in the Art room. Students may also come to the Art room before and after school, or opt to take their work home and complete it away from school.

Our deadline for artwork submissions will be the first week of December. Please let your art teacher know by Thursday, September 25, if you are interested in this “extra” project so that we will have enough time to complete quality artwork for the Scholastic Art competition.
