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!
