Art Fair Project Viewing

The artists of Grady Elementary have been studying Color Theory, Hispanic Heritage, and Proportion during this first semester of school.  Grady Elementary students will be presenting a Winter Art Show, which will be on display during the week of the Winter Concerts.  The art will be available, in the cafeteria, for viewing from 4:00 - 5:30 pm on Wednesday, December 5th before the 1st and 2nd grade Winter Concert begins.  The exhibit will continue to hang in the cafeteria for the remainder of the week.  Students whose artwork will be on display will receive a special invitation that will be sent home, however, anyone is welcome to come enjoy the exhibit and witness the exemplary artistry blooming at Grady.
