Our May First Friday art exhibit featured artwork by the 8th Grade students at Sussex School. With the help of art teacher, Jen Bardsley, students researched famous Art History paintings and created re-productions of the artworks. Before the First Friday event, students also gave formal presentations, meaning they are experts on their creations!
The night was lively, as Jen spent time at the store, welcoming students and families, helping to show off each art piece! What is extra exciting about this event? The artwork is for sale! The small pieces are $20 and the large pieces are $30. The money raised goes towards Sussex School's 8th Grade Field trip in May. Each student needs to raise around $700, so La Stella Blu and the Missoula Community are helping them reach their goals via art and First Friday!
