Second semester is on the horizon. Beat the midwinter blues with some energizing projects and proven strategies to build awareness, involve stakeholders and put some fun into serious program promotion!
1 Famous Art Quotes - Have students create posters based on famous art quotes. Use traditional media or Photoshop.
2 On My Own Time - Host a school-wide exhibition of creative efforts by students, faculty and staff (include your BOE and parent groups). Host an 'opening reception' so that all of the stakeholders in your community can gather to discuss the role of art in their personal lives! (Unity Through Art!)
4 Add some fun and challenge to PE classes - have students design and construct a 'miniature golf course' 6 hole challenge - and host a mini-tournament. Get the staff involved also! With permission, post about it on your school website, and/or write a story about it for your local newspaper.
