CVIS Art Room

Join us in celebrating our creative and talented students at CVIS! Each student has chosen an artwork to be framed and displayed during A Night of the Arts on December 19, 2018. This event is in conjunction with the Orchestra and Band Concert. Families will have the opportunity to purchase their child's framed artwork. The cost is $35.00 for the frame. The artwork is not part of this price as it belongs to the student already. Framed artworks will be sent home with students December 20 and 21. Unsold frames will be dismantled and the artwork will be returned to your student in January. All proceeds support our art and music programs at CVIS.

Happy Art Making,

Mrs. Mastren-Williams
