Arts Renaissance in Tuscaloosa Schools

Bringing the arts to Tuscaloosa-area schools.


October 2016


We just wanted to say thank you to everyone who came out and helped this past Friday to make the fossil workshop a success! All the kids enjoyed making their fossils and had a great time.

Thank you!

Once again we would like to express our gratitude to the ARTS community and the staff and students at Matthews Elementary School.
Thank you for helping to make the pumpkin painting workshop a resounding success! We could not have done it without your creativity and enthusiasm.
Until next time, Roll ARTS Roll!
ICYMI: On Friday, Oct. 7, about 10 volunteers helped facilitate workshops in three 5th grade classrooms, with a total of about 75 students.
Volunteers read Halloween stories to students who then got to decorate pumpkins with paint, glitter glue, googly eyes, feathers and more!

Pumpkin Party!


Happy October to the ARTS community and beyond! We have been getting in the Autumn and Halloween Spirit, and are excited to announce that for this week’s workshop we will be decorating pumpkins!

Each 5th grader at Matthews Elementary School will get a miniature pumpkin to paint. They will then write about and present their pumpkins to the class.

We would always love an extra pair of hands to help the students with the projects. Anyone interested in helping is greatly appreciated and should come to Matthews Elementary School at 12:45 and expect to be there until 2:15. It is recommended that volunteers wear clothes that they don’t mind getting paint on.

Thanks and Roll ARTS Roll!
