Artist in Residence – Volunteers Needed!

Posted Mar 14, 2019 | Category: Volunteers

Ames Parents/Guardians-

I am excited to announce that this year’s Artist in Residence* is Spudnik Press.  Spudnik staff will be at Ames THIS Friday, March 15 for a kick-off assembly during students’ lunch periods. If possible, please make sure your child stays at school for lunch on Friday.

Spudnik will return NEXT WEEK to teach screen printing during regularly scheduled art classes. If you are available during your child’s art class, please sign up to volunteer using the instructions in red at the bottom of this message. If you don’t know when your child has art, the link lists the volunteer spots by grade/teacher name. NOTE: 4th and 5th grade students will have an additional 30 minute art session on Friday morning to work with Spudnik on combining all students’ artwork into a collaborative art installation.

Lastly, on the day your child will be screen printing, please send him/her to school in clothes and shoes that can get messy!

If you have any questions, please contact me at kjmarrero2000@gmail.com.

Thank you,

Kim Marrero, Artist in Residence committee chair
