On October 4, the Arts Council hosted the Fall Paint and Snack. Forty students attended the festivities, which took place in the Design Space after school. The event was organized by the Arts Council, led by Grace Sullivan ‘24, with faculty assistance. Those who attended were provided with a tote bag and paint, making the possibilities of creativity endless. Faculty and staff members had the opportunity to assist students and join in on the fun.
In addition to painting, students were able to indulge in delicious treats. An assortment of food and drinks such as donuts and apple cider were offered for students to enjoy. At the end of the event, students were also able to choose from a selection of candy to bring home.
Francesca Bowie-Jones ‘27 said, “The best part of the Paint and Snack in my opinion was getting to know my fellow classmates and painting! The Paint and Snack was a very fun event. It really helped me bond with my classmates and get to know the people I will be spending the next four years with.”
By the end of the event, guests were able to take home the impressive artwork displayed on their totes. Arts teacher, Mrs. Straine, said, “We had everything from Halloween scenes to disco ball dance floors to floral explosions – A nice variety of ideas.”
Grace Sullivan said, “I would just like to say that I was so happy to see so many underclassmen faces. Everyone seemed super happy to be there and the artwork everyone made was crazy impressive. I couldn’t be prouder that the first Arts Council event of the year was a success!”
Based on the great turnout for the first Paint & Snack of this year, the Arts Core Council hopes to plan another event soon!
