Earth Day Art Show 2017

During Open House Thursday, April 20th, 2017

5:00- 7:00 PM

Benchley’s Fifth Annual Student Art Showcase, “Earth Day is Every Day”, will be held during Open House on Thursday, April 20th.  This year’s theme encourages students to use their imagination in creating artwork that reflects an “Earth Day” theme (Earth Day is Saturday, April 22).  This can be anything from art composed of recycled/repurposed materials, to garden themed art, to earth/world themed art!

Please encourage your child to participate in this visual arts “gallery exhibit”, featuring child-created artwork in ANY type of media – including painting, drawing, collage, ceramics/clay (pottery or sculpture) and wall hangings.

Because remember…”the Earth without ART is just “Eh”.

All artwork is due in the classrooms by Monday, April 17th!

If your child is interested in submitting a work of art for the show, please see the guidelines sent home last week (check those red folders!) or contact
