Call for Fence Art Submissions
Are you a student with a short, original poem you would like to submit? Are you a teacher, parent, or community member who would like to help us with this project? Do you have access to tools and supplies that might help us bring this project to fruition?
We are looking for short poems and haiku written by students, to turn into beautiful artwork to mount on the chain link fencing around the school! Two poems will be selected to paint on wooden boards as part of a school community art project this fall. One poem will be installed outside the school courtyard, and the other poem will be installed on the fence outside the Kindergarten classrooms. These art installations will be a combination of painted images and words, reflecting the school’s connection to nature and the environment. Suitable themes might include the rain garden, the school veggie garden, local plants, birds and animals, the seasons, and our place within the Columbia River Slough watershed.
Poetry submissions can be delivered to the Peninsula school office, (c/o the PTA), or may be sent by email. Poem length should be 15 words or less. To submit a poem, for additional information, or to volunteer, please contact Monica at email@example.com or 503-341-9176 (cell/txt).
Deadline: Last Day of School (June 9, 2016)
