The morning was spent getting mats for the students’ work, discussing the awards, planning the day-before-the-event activities and deciding how many pieces of artwork each school will bring. The teachers also discussed the possibility of having ice cream sundaes and live music from the FHS Jazz Band.

In the afternoon the teachers met with Frankie Reynolds at the Performing Arts Center to go over all details for the Art Exhibition.

Artwork by Andrea Bell, FHS Senior, was chosen for the invitations. All of the students whose work has been chosen will receive an invitation to the event to bring home to family and friends.

The title for the art show this year is “ART: SO MUCH MORE THAN WHAT YOU SEE.” The event will take place on Sunday, April 22, 2012. It will be at The Smoky Mountain Center for The Performing Arts from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. This will be a great time to celebrate the accomplishments of our young artists. Each year the event planning grows as this creative group of teachers resolves to make this year’s art show even better than the last.
