Our 5th Annual Fox Hill School Art Show was absolutely fabulous (if I do say so myself!) Every child at the Fox Hill School and Fox Hill School Kindergarten who will be "moving up" to Kindergarten or First Grade next year had their artwork displayed in art show. We used one of the artist's easel paintings to make the invitation for the parents.
Logistically, we mounted most of the artwork in advance to either foam core display panels or stapled to large pieces of butcher paper.
Then when we arrived we just had to place the display panels and hang the butcher paper with the artwork already attached. That significantly cuts down on the set up time, leaving more time for placement of the 3D artwork like clay and paper mache.
Parents were allowed to take their children's artwork home directly from the art show. This way we didn't risk damaging their work transporting it back from the show. Kids were excited to bring their work home and it made clean up a snap!
We are very lucky to get to use our local library - Peabody Institute Library in Danvers - as the venue for our art show. Our school is too small to host an event of this size and collaboration with others in our community makes events like these possible!click here or below to see a montage of the Art Show!
