Order your Art and Photo Gifts!



Don’t forget to take a look at the art coming home that your student has completed in class, or they can make a new piece – even use your photographs to put onto unique products!  Just in case you need them, here are some helpful documents and product ideas!  Students as well as family are welcome to participate!

Order ASAP for the holidays and remember all products are mailed directly to your home!

1.   All artwork must be on one side of an 8 1/2×11 white paper, child’s full name on the back in pencil please

2.  Markers, oil pastels, crayons and paint work best.  Bright and bold colors are desirable.  Paper collage (flat) also works well

3.  No day-glo paints, day-glo papers, glitter or pencil drawings please

4.  Children may sign and date their artwork, but please allow a ¼ inch border so their names aren’t cut off
