There is always something going on in the art room, and we could always use helping hands! Some volunteer jobs include hanging students’ art in the halls, organizing supplies, repairing things, cleaning storage areas, and updating the website. Some families have enjoyed having a weekly volunteering hour in the art room, while others have come in for one-time volunteer opportunities. If you have some time and would like to help out, please contact Ms. Singer using the “Contact Me” form on the left sidebar.
Art Room Wish List – Updated for 2014-2015!
If you have any of these items, we would love to make art with them. Items in bold are priority items. Anything you have 60-70 of, we can probably find a use for it. If you have something that you think we could use, please don’t hesitate to drop it off in the art room or send it with a student. We are very creative with our projects, but if we can’t use it, we will find someone who can or toss it lovingly. Thank you!
