During the week of May 17-21 (the last week of school) your child will have the opportunity to participate in something very exciting! Our school is not able to provide an art program for elementary students; however, from time to time an opportunity like this presents itself to us—and greatly benefits kids!!

Sharon Louden, a nationally recognized artist from New York City will be visiting Greensburg that week to do a special art workshop named GlowTown. Students from 1st – 8th grade (and the high school art students) will get to construct their ideal town out of ordinary items and glow-in-the-dark paint. When the lights are turned off, the town will be transformed! This will be an excellent exercise in creativity, problem solving and team-work.

Ms. Louden’s goal is to teach students that art can be created from the simplest of materials, but we need your help collecting supplies! We will need neutral-colored items such as empty paper-towel rolls, cotton swabs, cardboard, foam-core, popsicle sticks, tissue boxes, etc.

Anything you can donate is greatly appreciated! Please drop them by the 5.4.7 Arts Center or send them with your child to school by May 10. Please let me know if you have any questions!

Thank you so much for helping to make this workshop possible for our kids!
