(Thank you Natalie Arnett for capturing these amazing pictures and Jen Ford for prepping the board & coordinating the sessions)
In a very unique, and rewarding, classroom experience; every child in Asher Weitzen’s 2013-14 4th grade class had the opportunity to add their personal flare to an amazing piece of artwork being auctioned off at this year’s Surfboard Art Festival event.
With the help of well-known local artists Chris Pedersen and Charlie Clingman (both artists with their own entries this year) Mr. Weitzen’s 30 students not only received a fantastic art lesson learning techniques, creating color variations and brush styles… but also the importance of providing a selfless service for our community.
It was a truly inspired experience!
