When seven Greenbrier School District art teachers put their heads together, the result was an explosion of fantastic creativity known as Arts in March.
Displayed from every vacant wall and window space of the Fine Arts Building were works of art created by school children from Kindergarten through 12th grade. Even corridors were devoted to whole displays hung carefully for all to see. Table tops and every available shelf space were adorned with sculptures, masks, acrylic bowls, wire art and many other fabulous pieces.
Art teachers from each school coaxed their students in preparation for their biggest art show of the year and coordinated efforts to get it all displayed in the Fine Arts Building for everyone to enjoy.
Many pieces were so inviting that some wanted to touch them, in spite of admonishments from parents to their eager youngsters not to. Parents proudly photographed their youngsters as they explained their work of art. It was a jovial, very appreciative crowd who not only enjoyed walking the whole building to see the treasures, but some just sat down to listen to the five different choirs who sang during the afternoon.
Art teachers Karen Hall, GHS; Cody Harris, Wooster Elementary; Crystal Gordon, Eastside Elementary; Amanda Chandler, Westside Elementary; Lisa Foster, Middle School; Ann Harrod, Middle School; and Katie Bellott, Junior High School; received many thank-yous and congratulations from parents for their fine leadership.
