If you love art but don’t like painting huge canvases, the post-it-note art show is perfect for you. Even if you aren’t very talented at art, you should still give it a shot. It’s not that hard; all you have to do is head over to Ms. Curry’s classroom (room 138), pick up a couple post-it notes, and start doodling.
If you are interested and would like to participate in the art show, please keep in mind the following rules. The images must be school appropriate (of course), because no one would want the art show to be ruined by an inappropriate drawing. You are allowed to submit up to three post-it notes for the show. If you don’t have any post-it-notes come to Ms. Curry’s class (room 138) at lunch or after school. You are allowed to use text, but only if it promotes positivity. Work indicating little to no effort will not be displayed.
If you don’t have the time to get some post it notes from Ms. Curry, you can use your own. You can only use the standard size of post-it notes. There are no restrictions for the type of material that can be used for the drawing (water colors, colored pencils, chalk), so be creative!
If you are short on ideas for the art show, you are allowed to look at pictures for inspiration. You are not allowed to completely copy a picture, but if you want to add your own touch to it, that’s okay.
Remember to put your full name and grade on the back of the post-it note or else it will not be accepted. Submit work to room 138 by Tuesday, October 13. The art show will be displayed in the large display case near room 138. If you have anymore questions ask Ms. Curry, she will be glad to answer. Hopefully you can take part in Santa Barbara Jr. High’s first ever Post-It-Note art show!
