Art in the Park

Art in the Park

Despite the rain and rearranged plans, everyone enjoyed Art in the Park in Southport Middle School’s cafeteria. Students beamed with excitement as they moved from one delicious activity to the next and enjoyed scrumptious appetizers donated by local businesses, faculty and staff. In the photo, Stefanie Victor and Parmaisha Crocket encourage students to play with their food in the “Food Art” station, where they used fresh produce as paint brushes to create their own masterpieces. All of the activities tied in with National Farm to School Month and helped to fund our Arts in Education program.
