      * Plano Arts Summer Program (PArts) held in conjunction with SIGS

The month of June holds a wonderful and exciting opportunity for girls and boys who enjoy creative visual art experiences. Students are invited by their art teachers based on talent and ability in art to the Plano Arts Summer Program- PArts.

Students will enjoy using unique tools and materials in both two- and three-dimensional activities. The springboard to all activities and projects will be known masterpieces by past and contemporary artists. Among some of the activities in which students will be involved are:

... a variety of drawing techniques,

... a variety of painting techniques,

... exploration of sculpture.

Each day students meet with peers and the teachers will direct them through the many skills necessary to produce personal masterpieces. After all work is completed, student creations will be displayed for parents and friends to enjoy at the Art Gala! Following the gallery showing, student work will be collected to begin a portfolio for future art pursuits.

We know that this sounds like a challenge; however, the students that have been selected to receive an invitation have already demonstrated an outstanding ability to create great works of art, study, work hard, solve problems. Students will enjoy learning, creating, working and performing in an atmosphere where they are the star!
