PTSA and Smart with Art are excited to bring art classes to Timber Ridge on Wednesdays for the rest of the year. Due to the success of our Fall “Pass the Hat” fundraiser, the PTSA is able to offer units in Watercolors, Chalk, Collage, and Marker, taught by Smart with Art instructor Tara Tabares. Parents are invited to volunteer with their student’s class, or can help with the mounting of projects at home. A selection of art pieces from the recent Watercolor Unit are currently on display by grade in the entry hallway at Timber Ridge. Beautiful work! Check it out! And thank you to everyone who supported the fundraiser and made this Art Program possible.
