Art In Action Day
Avoca West hosts an Art in Action day each year 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.
Every year, local artists partner with Art in Action. Last year’s artists included:
Karisma Dance Company – Karly Walchli
