On Friday, December 2, from 5 to 9pm, see wonderful artwork by College Park High School Visual Arts students. Each visual art class has prepared items unique to their specialty. Come meet talented students on hand to hear how they created these unique giftables.
The glass students will have hand-cut and/or etched, stained and fused glass tree ornaments and night-lights. There will also be glasses with the College Park logo etched into them. The ceramics students will have handmade mugs, whimsical spoon rests for the kitchen, bowls, and vases in all sizes. In addition, there will be mugs with the College Park logo silkscreened onto them. The photography students will use their unique photos and apply them (using different methods) to numerous gift items such as ornaments, key chains, coasters, artists canvas, mouse pads, and candle holders, to name a few. The advanced photography students will have matted prints of their personal photography for sale as well as action photography taken of the College Park sports teams. The fine art students will have hand-painted notecards, beautiful bookmarks, and an assortment of jewelry. Advanced students will have 12 x 18 size works in acrylic, as well as other fine art drawings and/or paintings. In fact, the watercolor that is the background for their poster was designed and painted by one of the advanced students.
Hot dogs, chips, and beverages will be available for sale, and proceeds will support the visual arts programs. The College Park Visual Boosters (CPVAB) supports fine arts (painting/drawing), photography, ceramics, and glass, and there will be something for everyone. All items are for purchase, and the non-profit CPVAB will process the sales. Your purchases should be tax-deductible. For questions, contact [email protected]
