The Heart of Portland was a great success, though as this is the very first year for this event, we learned a lot and will be able to streamline some of the set up next year.
Our art-TOSA, who is responsible for all the arts in pps, K-12 did 90% of the work, with small support crews of teachers. Kristen Brayson did a great job organizing this opportunity to showcase student art work in all the arts disciplines.
Each school could submit one art piece and our 3rd grader, represented Capitol Hill.
But the fun (and publicity, positive notoriety) doesn't stop there!
Art is Elementary-2 is happening again.
Reception 3/5, 3:30-5:00 pm
22x PPS elementary schools who benefit from the Arts Tax funding, are having an art show at City Hall. I am submitting the work of 8 students to showcase what CH has done with their arts tax funding.
