Grace Art

Welcome to Grace Art!

GRACE Art is a monthly art enrichment program that was developed by the Greater Reston Art Center (GRACE) and is supported by the PTA.

Each month, our children explore an artist or genre of art through a coordinated art project introduced to their class by teams of parent volunteers. GRACE Art volunteers teach art appreciation and complete art projects with students in the classroom. This is a monthly program, and takes approximately one hour of volunteer time in the classroom. Docents are asked to attend short, monthly training sessions during the school day to learn about the featured artist and related art project.

We are so very excited to start off this years Grace Art program with projects centered around creating elements for an FHES Float to be entered into the Annual Town of Vienna Halloween Parade taking place October 25th at 7pm on Maple Ave.  The theme is GREAT OUTDOORS, and each grade will be completing projects to be used to populate the float. We are recreating our amazing courtyard complete with tree, flower garden, bridge and vegetable garden!  We wanted to supply you with the project instructions to deliver ahead of time to your volunteers, if you wish.  There will also be copies & Supplies on the carts in the Grace Art Supply room.
