Art In Action Day
Each year, Avoca West hosts an Art in Action as a way to help students develop creativity, critical thinking, self-expression and cultural awareness through various art curriculum. Students from K to 5th grade master an art project under the guidance of a local artist and parent volunteers get to help out. Past year’s art stations included hands-on experience with watercolors, abstract acrylic painting, still life, digital portraits, jewelry making, dance, glow stick photography, mask painting and collage scrapbooking.This year’s Art-in-Action Day will be held on February 6, 2020.
Every year, local artists partner with Art in Action. Last year’s artists included:
