Art Department Receives Bright Ideas Grant
The Bright Ideas Grant, generously donated by the Union Power Cooperative, is called "Electric Chairs." Beth Woodall and her art students plan to recycle discarded desk chairs from the school surplus. These old chairs will be stripped and transformed into works of art by the Art IV students. Each student will choose the style of a famous artist to use as the theme for his/her chair. For example, a Monet chair might have the quick brushstrokes and soft focus waterlilies so typical of this Impressionsitic artist. A Friday Kahlo chair would feature the Latin colors and themes she loved so much. Look for these masterpieces at the Sun Valley Art Show March 26.
