* Plano Arts Summer Program (PArts) held in conjunction with
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
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
... a variety of painting
... 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!
