11 Alive!!!

We were honored to have Donna Lowry with 11 Alive News in the art room filming yesterday for the Class Act segment! Keasler's 2nd grade class created their amazing clay pinch pot fish with Donna Lowry (yes... she created one, too!) and for "King Bruce" behind the camera. It was a BLAST and the kiddos did an awesome job! It will air on Monday (Halloween!) on 11 Alive at 6:40am, at the noon hour and then online after that. Please watch our lil' Ford artists on TV!

Reflections 2011

In its more than 40-year history, the Reflections program has encouraged millions of students across the nation and in American schools overseas to explore their artistic talents. The program offers students the opportunity to create works of art for fun and recognition. Students in preschool through grade 12 are encouraged to submit works of art in six arts areas:

•Dance choreography

•Film production


•Musical composition


•Visual arts
Reflections Theme - "Diversity Means..."
Each year, the National PTA Reflections Program challenges students to create art inspired by a specific theme. Themes are selected from hundreds of ideas submitted by students in the PTA Reflections Program Theme Search Contest. Past themes have included "Exploring New Beginnings," "If I Could Give the World a Gift...," "A Different Kind of Hero," “I Can Make a Difference by…” and “Wow!” and "Together we can." The 2011-2012 theme is "Diversity Means..."

It has been a great first three days of school! The kids and I have had a blast diving into our projects on the first day of art. We REALLY don't have a minute to waste!

We have been asked to participate in the Cobb EMC Holiday Card Contest so we're having winter in August / September in the art room! I wonder if our snowflakes in the art room will cool the weather down outside?
Square One is also coming up shortly! We have to have all of our beautiful projects ready by October so that we make sure that you can order products with your kiddo's gorgeous artwork by the holidays. More info will be coming soon!

Thanks for your support of the art program at Ford!
