Reef Mural Ceremony

May 9th, 2014 No comments

The Reef Mural is officially complete! To honor the occasion we held a ceremony for the students.

A representative from each class came to the front and passed along the final tile.

Everything looks wonderful. We hope the mural stays up long enough for everyone to enjoy and admire. The students did an amazing job working together and we’re very proud of them.

Thank you once again to the Docents and everyone who donated their valuable time to helping this project come together, we couldn’t have done it without you!

2011-12 GRACE ARTS Program

September 22nd, 2011 No comments

Parents,

Please help bring GRACE Arts into your child’s classroom! This is a special program that the Kids (and Parents) really look forward to every year!

GRACE Arts is a parent volunteer program sponsored by the Greater Reston Arts Center.   Parents are trained to teach one hour sessions in the classroom. Each session covers a specific artist or genre. The parent will discuss the artist or genre and show a portfolio, then instruct the students in a hands-on project. For each project we collect a sampling and display them for the school to enjoy!  In the classroom, one parent teaches and at least one parent assists.

Parent volunteers and the classroom teacher can discuss a suitable time that works for all of you.  Training sessions are held in the cafeteria at 9:30 AM and again at 7:00PM.  You need only attend one session on the dates listed below.

TRAINING DATES FOR 2011-12

SEPTEMBER 28th (For October)        René Magritte –Belgian Painter

OCTOBER 26th      (For November)­   Alexander Calder-American Sculptor

FEBRUARY 1st                                            Cave Painting –Earliest Art

FEBRUARY 29th     (For March)­           Marc Chagall –Russian Painter

 

YOUR HELP IS CRITICAL TO THE SUCCESS OF THIS PROGRAM!

The GRACE Arts program involves very little of your time, yet yields big benefits for our children. Please consider becoming a volunteer art teacher.
