Afternoon of the Arts

"Afternoon of the Arts" is a pilot program run by SCAAC in partnership with Utsalady Elementary and the school's Booster Club (aka: parent-teacher org). One day each month (January, February & March), the afternoon was reserved for art, creativity and togetherness. Local artists taught a lesson to students at each grade level – that's 420 students from Pre-K to 5th grade!

 

The students have made:

1) Art for Each Other : artist trading cards 

2) Art for Fundraising : each class created an auction piece to support future arts programming

3) Art for Utsalady : large-scale, installed art to beautify the school

 

We are so proud of our teaching artists: M. Andrew Curry, Bobbi Samples, Hanna Gould, Katie Walton, Kelly Crumpley, Lael Williams, Resha Hanson, Shogo Ota & Tasha Smith.

BIG THANK YOU to everyone at Utsalady Elementary:

- Principal Michael Hanna

- Callie Darland and the Utsalady Booster Club

- All the incredible teachers and staff

- All the parents that volunteered in the classrooms

Art for Each Other

01

Art for Each Other

Students created "Artist Trading Cards" using different mediums and techniques at each grade level. Once all the cards were dry, Principal Hanna offered the school a "trading time", giving students time to trade their cards with their friends and teachers.

Art for Utsalady

This was a BIG one! Principal Hanna asked us to beautify walls, hallways and stairwells with large-scale student art that will live at the school for years to come.
