Crestwood Art Room

This is Ms. Magee’s second year at Crestwood School. She looks forward to a creative and fun year! To start off in a happy and energized way, the art department is participating in a fundraising program called Art to Remember.

This program provides an opportunity for families to create household items like coffee mugs, mouse pads, phone cases, T-shirts, key chains, and more with their child’s artwork printed on them. Information will be going home in the Fall.

ART CLUB

Art Club is working on the Holiday in the Park mural for this winter to be seen by the public. They are also getting ready for a Walk Through History with the 4th graders in the surrounding area schools. The art club will help instruct the 4th graders on a tin punch project.

 

A Walk through History 2017

Mid-September marks the time for the Honey Bee Festival. Our Art Club volunteered to be a part of the Edgar County Historical Society’s “A Walk Through History”. They were the Crestwood Crafters! The eighth grade art club helped the Crestwood, Paris Community, and surrounding schools enjoy creating a tin punch craft. The Crestwood 4th grade joined us in the afternoon. The students worked hard, but had a lot of fun!
