LRMS Art Club joins Cary Creative Center in an effort to recycle old Christmas and Seasonal cards. In fact, I believe it's called "upcycling" since the end result is a totally new product. Thanks to the Art Club team that has been working for several weeks to turn old greetings into a heartfelt "thank you for your service" and we hope "your holidays are joyful."
And thank you to our client Cary Creative Center for providing an opportunity for us to serve far beyond our school walls.
Since we were in the throws of Printmaking, several art students were compelled to produce many extra holiday greeting cards with personalized messages in order to add them to this special care package.

Art never before exhibited is now up in the main office, so stop by, say hello and peek at some new student projects.
All art club members should check in weekly for the listing of project teams and new assignments -- especially if you miss a meeting and/or are tracked out. Fun projects exclusive to our club are announced there, so don't miss
All Mrs. Barlow's Track 4 Art Students are dearly missed during their time off! Have a relaxing break!
Don't forget about the art exhibit and opening at Cary Ballet Company tomorrow from 2:30 until 5:30. If you cannot attend to see some of our talented student work:) no worries since your art teacher intends to go to take pictures during the event and will post the news! We also missed you all at our Art Club meeting this week. Hope you check in to our site here and encourage friends and family to do the same since it is always changing.
Mrs. Barlow is happy to announce that several LRMS art students' acrylic paintings will be on display October 5 - 23 at the Cary Ballet Company. The opening event is scheduled for Saturday, October 5th from 2:30 - 5:30pm. But if you cannot attend that day, consider stopping by the studio to view our students' work on weekdays until 9pm or Saturdays from 9am - 3pm.
Each year, Cary Ballet Company sponsors ‘Celebration of Children in the Arts’ event the first Saturday in October at 3791 NW Cary Parkway (near Preston Corners). This event is open to the public free of charge and will feature local young people in performing and visual arts. There will be continuous performing groups including dance, Triangle Youth String Sinfonia, Raleigh Youth Magic and performers from Paper Hand Intervention. Make & Take crafts will be offered, and visual art from different area schools will be on display.
Students selected to participate in this exhibit are currently enrolled in Mrs. Barlow's eighth-grade, track 4 art class. Thank you for promoting the arts in our community, and congratulations Morgan, Haley, Jenna, Robin, Christy, Amanda, Bailey, Lyric, Lucy, Deven, James and Lexi!
Should your Art Box plan be approved, you will be selected to participate in this unique opportunity!
The Art Box Volunteer Project is open to all Lufkin Road Middle School Art Club members. In order to receive a box, you must submit a tight comprehensive theme design for approval and turn in this contract. Once your box is issued, you may work alone or with a partner. Our working deadline is February 1. Art Club meetings may be designated to work on this project, and you may choose to work on your own or with a partner.
These unique antique wooden boxes have an interesting history. Measuring 8.25” high, 6” wide and 6” deep, the boxes were once long-time fixtures serving as stacked filing drawers at Elliot’s Pharmacy in downtown Fuquay-Varina. When the drugstore closed this past year, the owners generously donated them for use in our art program. Each will be creatively “up-cycled” to a handcrafted piece of art -- either functioning as a type of organizer, or just simply to display as an interesting conversation piece.
By volunteering to complete this project, you are also agreeing to donate your work. The finished Art Boxes will be included in a silent auction in the February 21st fundraiser sponsored by our PTA. This is a wonderful opportunity for us as Art Club members to give back to our school and promote the arts in our community at the same time. So “mark your calendar” for the February 21st Silent Auction. Your parents may want to bid on your fabulously original piece of art!
___Yes, I would like to participate and have parental permission to display and sell my work. I understand that my art work will not be returned to me but am encouraged to keep photographs for my portfolio.
___Yes, I give Mrs. Barlow permission to include a photograph of me on our school art webpage. I understand that if identified, she will use first names only.
___No, I do not wish for my photograph to appear on the school website.
