Hillside Art to Remember Program
Hillside Elementary School

On the week of September 18th, Hillside students will be starting their Art to Remember projects. This wonderful project involves your child creating a special drawing that can be reproduced on many different types of items which can be gifted to family and friends. Due to stringent deadlines, all Art to Remember projects must be completed within 3-4 art classes. In order for your child to have the optimal amount of time to complete this project, it is imperative that he/she choose a subject and bring in a picture or pictures to their Art class.

Please CLICK HERE for the Hillside 2017 Art to Remember flyer, which includes more information about the types of images/pictures that your child can bring in. 

We rely on the involvement of many parent volunteers to make this project a success. We will need volunteers for all classes to monitor the children's progress throughout the project, which will run from September 18 - October 25.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Freida Arias-Topalian at freidarn@gmail.com or sign up directly here.  For any other questions, please reach out to the Art to Remember co-chairs below:
