SES art students created a "Zentangle Chair" SES fourth graders to
participate in this year's WVHS Chair Auction
on May 1

Zentangle Chair and student art to be displayed

April 7, 2015 - This year, for the first time, SES fourth grade students will participate in the annual WVHS Chair Auction! Students are working together to create a "Zentangle Chair." Each 4th grade student has been asked to create 3-4 Zentangle Circles of different sizes. These circles will be cut out and adhered to a chair, and each student will have one or more circles on this chair.

On May 1, both the K-8 Art Show at the District Office, and the WVHS Art Show & Chair Auction at the HS, will take place. We hope to have a great turnout at the HS Art Show & Chair Auction, so we can contribute to raising scholarship money for high school art students this year.
