West Point Elementary School students are getting more than a hot meal through West Point Elementary’s summer lunch program. In partnership with the LaGrange Art Museum, West Point Elementary recently donated at-home art-making kits to students for continuing art and humanities education during the summer months. The program aims to keep students actively engaged in creative thinking even while not in the classroom—all in a manner students can enjoy.
Made possible by funds from the Community Foundation of the Chattahoochee Valley, the recent donation is the first in a series of four planned this summer. The art-making kits, which were donated by the LaGrange Art Museum, are each modeled after one of the museum’s permanent collections. Students received their art kits through the school’s summer lunch program.
The four different kits boast themes inspired by collections within the museum, including: 3-D model magic creatures, gesture drawings, animal motion wire sculptures, and superhero creations. Designed to promote creativity, these kits pull from kid-friendly themes that students are sure to enjoy.
The remaining art kits will be distributed throughout the summer.
