Congratulations to Firebird art students are often called upon to volunteer their services for various school projects and Kettering organizations.

 

Our Craft and Sculpture students were asked by the city of Kettering to participate with the Public Art City Sites project.  Beth Holyoke and Kaethi Seidl artists chosen for the Polen Farm Sculpture came to Fairmont for the day. They shared their vision for their tile  project  with the students and lead the students in making clay tiles for the community project. The tiles will be used with other tiles to create a “Big Egg” sculpture that will be installed in the newly renovated Polen Farm Park in the autumn of 2010.

 

Recently Alic Brock and Annelise Bodary completed a new Firebird Painting for the Main Office.

 Bethany Schartzentruber, Chelsea Ewing and Kasey Garvey hand lettered and created signs for Sicsa’s “Strut Your Mutt Day” to be held at Delco Park in June.

 Seniors Cassie Sant, Amena Shermadou and Emily Miller are face painting for their former elementary school’s Family Fun Event.
