This last Friday, April 10th, Argyle ISD celebrated Art Night, where students experienced six different art-making adventures they got to take home.
Art Night’s event coordinator, Cory Hederich, believes Art Night is an opportunity to celebrate art through experimenting with different types of art-making materials.
During Art Night, students can try many types of art media like watercolor painting, collage, printmaking, jewelry making, chalk art, and faux stained glass using permanent markers and plastic sheets.
“It is a time for the National Junior Art Honor Society and The National Art Honor Society to experience leadership by sharing their love of art with the community by leading art activities” Hederich said.
The first Art Night was in 2010, and the National Junior Art Honor Society and The National Art Honor Society are having students that at one time came to experience art, but are now leading the art activities.
Hederich thinks Art Night has become an Argyle tradition that many students look forward to.
“My favorite thing about art night is seeing the smiling face painted little artist walking out feeling proud with a handful of art they created” Hederich said.
