 “The Bright Side,” is a new publication where AV families can share their unique experiences during this unprecedented time. 

Please send us your submissions of artwork, photos, writing, recipes, or crafting/how-to-activities that pertain to your time spent staying safe during the Pandemic.

Email your submission to: [email protected]

Include in your email your student’s name & grade, the category for which they are submitting, the submission attachment, and a brief description. Please include high-resolution images if possible (300dpi). Families with multiple children can submit separately or together! 

In-Home Monthly Art Project

Our AV Wildcats are known for their artistry, and this year will be no different! To keep creative outlets going, we’ve adapted our in-classroom Art Docent program to become an at-home monthly art project, scaled by grade level.

Every month we’ll send out a new project featuring a highlighted artist or theme, art concepts, materials list, step-by-step directions and additional resources. Keep your eye out for Advance Sign-Ups for projects involving speciality materials, which we will provide at a designated art supply pick up.

For more info or questions, please contact [email protected] Looking forward to another great year of art at AV!
