ART EXHIBIT AT BES
"We Are All Artists"
Please come and enjoy the new art exhibit at our school in the hallways and display case near the office. The artists are our own BES Staff! The variety of art is here for you to enjoy. We would like our BES friends and families to celebrate our accomplishments with us. We hope you are inspired to try some art in your life whether it is painting a picture, taking a photograph, making jewellery, playing a musical instrument or illustrating a travel journal. We have textile art, collage and installation pieces as well. Come and find something to delight you! And please come and get to know the staff of BES a little better by seeing how we bring art into our own lives. We are all artists ~ and you are, too!
Exhibit open now until the beginning of December.
Thank you to staff and parent volunteers who helped to organize and hang the show.
