It's that time again!  Original Works is American Academy Visual Arts' biggest fundraiser of the year.  And more importantly it brings an exciting opportunity to our artists of all ages and all grades (including KindiePrep, Elementary, and Middle School).  Students and their families have the chance to purchase products that feature high-quality reproductions of their artwork.  Picture t-shirts, coffee mugs, pillowcases, key chains, and more, all featuring your art genius' work!

Artworks will come home in a green baggy that also includes all necessary forms and information. Orders are due on Monday, October 30th. If you have any questions or need help, please email Mrs. Fischer (elementary art --´╗┐) or Mr. Riggs (middle school art --
