Robert B. Turner Elementary students in first through fifth grade hosted an art fair on March 29.
Art teacher Tracey Birdwhistell said students worked on pieces for 2-3 weeks before they were ready to be displayed. “I like it because it makes them feel like a professional, like an artist,” Birdwhistell said.
With the help of company Kids Art Fairs, students had artworks framed and ready to be sold to friends and family. The school received a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the students’ artwork, Birdwhistell said.
