Mrs. Koch's Art Class


Dear Acres Green families,

We are partnering with SilverGraphics to celebrate creativity and raise needed funds for our school! You will have the opportunity to order your child's art printed on a wide range of products like magnets, ceramic mugs, canvas totes, and ornaments. Items will arrive in time for the holidays. These make great mementos and unique gifts for family and friends!

Every student will be able to participate, whether they are learning in-person or remotely!

For students who have completed a project at school, we will ship it to SilverGraphics for uploading to our private Online Art Shop. Virtual learners will be able to UPLOAD ART from home. All families will be able to upload multiple pieces of art, something your child created in the past, a new drawing, or both. Sibling art, family projects, and photographs are also accepted!

Our Online Art Shop will open on November 11.

Now's a great time to select any additional art you want to upload from home, or create something new. Go through those art bins and find the pieces you love the most. Take time to review SilverGraphics Guidelines for Creating and Uploading Art where you'll find art tips and specific instructions on how to get your art into digital format for uploading.

Watch for ordering instructions coming soon...

Look at what we're learning in art!
