Friday was the 6th Annual Art Gala in my school district.  The public schools in the area were able to literally take over the local mall and fill it with K-12 artwork, “make -it, take-it” art stations, an art auction, and an art parade (for the elementary schools).  I love that this event brings together all grade levels and celebrates and showcases local art.  All schools put up display boards, middle school students demonstrated painting techniques, the high school band played during the event, and local artists set up tables and spoke with students.  So much work, but it all paid off! 

I feel so much more prepared for the first Night of the Arts at my school in two weeks.
