The Art Show
School Arts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v103 n6 p45 Feb 2004
This article describes what once was thought to be impossible--a formal art show extravaganza at an elementary school with 1,000 students, a Department of Defense Dependent School (DODDS) located overseas, on RAF Lakenheath, England. The dream of this this event involved the transformation of the school cafeteria into an elegant art show celebrating the school's young artists' work with an attending audience of a few hundred parents in formal dress. This article describes the art show event and describes the details behind the idea; assistance and funds; and the actual night of the event.
