Four hundred people packed the campus at Loveland Elementary School (LES) for the second annual Family Art Night Wednesday, March 14. From live caricature production, to the creation of slime, origami, weaving, shrinky dinks, building and abstract tile production – it was one creative event!
“The building was packed with creative energy,” said LES Art Teacher Jeff Flaig, who organized the event. “This was LES art in action – it was a great experience for everyone involved, young and old!”
“Our Tiger parents are busy with some pretty long days at their jobs; sometimes going through backpacks and reading school emails just isn’t enough to really understand what learning is like for their kiddos,” said LES Principal Jennifer Forren. “This is an opportunity for those family members to come to their child’s building and be a bit of a kid again. It’s creative, it’s innovative, and it is building a connection between our community and our school. It is our privilege to spend our days helping children grow and innovate each day at LES – this is our way of sharing that joy.”
