Art In Action Day

The gym at Avoca West is buzzing with creative energy on the PTC-sponsored Art in Action Day! Students from K to 5th grade master an art project under the guidance of a local artist and parent volunteers get to help out! Last 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

Please check out their website for dance classes and summer camp options -

Glenview School of Arts – Dong Joo Kang & Bridget Halloran

Learn more about art techniques at various afterschool class options and summer camps.
