Students and families at Mountain Avenue Elementary came together at the school on the evening of May 17 to enjoy an evening of art hosted by the PTA’s visual art program. Live jazz, refreshments, the ever-popular “wacky hat” table and over 500 pieces of student artwork were on display – one piece from every student at the school.
The art program at the Mountain Avenue Elementary is funded entirely by PTA donations and is run by more than 60 docent volunteers who teach kindergarten through sixth grade lessons to students throughout the school year. Georgia O’Keefe-style flower paintings, Egyptian sarcophagus designs, Van Gogh textural paintings and prehistoric clan cave paintings were just some of the projects on display.
The professional jazz duet of Steve Snyder and Chad Edwards played for attendees. It was their fourth year participating in the event.
