If you are a Pawhuska Public Schools student, in elementary school, junior high, or high school, and if art is important to you, and if you would like to participate in an art-driven fundraiser called The Gallery Experience Fundraiser to benefit Pawhuska teachers, you have until Tuesday, Nov. 5, to send an email to Ms. Jon Marie Wilson at and tell her why art is important to you.

Tell her in a single paragraph why art is important to you. Just one paragraph. Send it by Nov. 5.

Tiny NDN Production Team has announced that 100 canvases will be available to be distributed to interested students. Remember, you can be in elementary school, junior high school or high school.

The art that you do for this event must be appropriate for a school environment. You may use any type of medium that you desire, but your art must be either on the canvas or attached to the canvas. For example, you may use crayons, markers, paint, yarn, twigs, leaves or anything else.

Here are four (4) key dates for you to remember regarding this activity: Monday, Dec. 2 - your artwork is due at school; Thursday, Dec. 5 - artists reception; Friday, December 6 - Live Auction; and Saturday, Dec. 7 - open to the public gallery.

Tiny NDN Production Team will release more information as it becomes available.
