Student Art at Greenbrier
Our 4th Annual School Wide Art Show is coming up! Please join us Monday, February 13, from 5:30-7:30 in the gym. Your student's artwork will be framed and hung on display but you must RSVP this year. Please return your RSVP form or email Ms. Crowell.
The art show is a wonderful opportunity to showcase all of the hard work that our students have been doing. It is a wonderful sight to see such a large art show featuring the work of our school full of wonderful artists. The art frames are for sale for $35 and the Greenbrier art program receives 25% of the sales. We use this percentage of the sales to buy our art supplies yearly. Please help us support and maintain the great art program we have at our school!
If you would like to buy your child's framed artwork in advance or you can't make it, please contact Artworks, Inc. (864) 373-9398 or email Debi McCoy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to contact Art Teacher Mollye Crowell with any other questions: email@example.com.
Greenbrier's Online Art Gallery
Greenbrier art students have an online art gallery that is constantly growing. Please visit Artsonia.com to see you student's work online. If nothing has been posted for your student, please check back soon! Our gallery as well as our artwork is a constant work in progress. This is a great site where you can share your student's artwork with famliy or friends across the country or world. Artsonia also offers you the opportunity to purchase copies of the artwork or in gift form. Greenbrier's art program gets a percentage back from any items sold through the website. You can join your student's fan club and post comments about their work. If you would rather not have your student's work visible please let Ms. Crowell know.

TTTBC (Take Time to Be Creative!)
10 Ways to Nurture Creativity by Peter H. Reynolds
1) Model it.
Demonstrate and share YOUR creativity and art.
2) Be Proud.
Do not denigrate your own art and creativity in front of children. Share it proudly.
3) Stock up.
Have plenty of arts supplies and media tools at your children’s fingertips.
4) Get Inspired.
Take your children to museums!
5) Share, share, share!
Make dinnertime – story-time. Have everyone tell a story about his or her day. Make storytelling a part of your family culture.
6) Celebrate originality.
Get as much original art up on the walls as possible. (Yours, your children’s, friends’)
7) Create your creative oasis.
Turn of the TV and play music on great speakers. Forget the earbuds. SHARE the sounds! Mix it up – play all types of music from all periods and all cultures.
8 ) Infuse the arts in unexpected places.
Make your dinner plates look like art. Arrange it in creative ways.
9) Set up your studio.
Create “studio spaces” in your home/school dedicated to making stuff.
10) Make it matter!
Brainstorm how you can use your talents and gifts to make the world a better place.
