Art Show at Borchardt Elementary Raises Hundreds for the PTA

Jan 07, 2016

Borchardt Elementary took a unique approach to fundraising for the PTA in December.

The school hosted an art show featuring a work of art from each of the school’s 730 students.

There was no specific theme for the art work. Each student selected one piece of work that they created during the first semester in art class. The artwork was then matted and framed.

The pieces were displayed and parents had the opportunity to purchase the work. Choir and instrumental groups performed background music during the show.

In all, more than 200 pieces of work were sold to benefit the Borchardt PTA. Approximately $2,500 will go toward purchasing instructional supplies for teachers and students.
