The Ottawa Hills Elementary Art Fair is coming the week of Feb. 24-28. Georges Seurat (Sir-rah), the French artist who invented Pointillism, will be the theme of this year’s Art Fair: “Sunny-Side Up with Seurat!” Students K-6 will be introduced to his life and art in the upcoming weeks.
The Art Fair judges choose winners during Art Fair Week. New this year: All first-place winners will receive a $20 gift card to The Art Supply Depo. Owner and Village resident Jules Webster has been an OHES art juror for several years. She has kindly donated the gift cards: “I thought it might be a fun way to encourage kids to continue down their artistic path.”
The Ottawa Hills Schools Parent Association will sponsor light breakfasts for elementary students and families Feb. 26 (last names A-K) and Feb. 27 (last names L-Z). Both events are from 7:30-8 a.m. in the new gym. The breakfasts are a lovely opportunity for families to nibble muffins and sip coffee while admiring the students’ fabulous art. Elizabeth Leeds is chair of this wonderful event.
Sarah Petro, owner of “Sugar Sugar” and mom to OHES students Luis and Ruby, will bake hundreds of delicious homemade muffins for us again this year. Michael Leeds and the OH Jazz Band will perform invigorating tunes both mornings to set your toes a-tapping!
