# Friends of the Arts

Friends of the Arts (FOTA) would love you on board!! 

We have some very exciting plans for the year culminating with an Art Exhibition Festival ‘The Dawning of Birrarung’ in Term 4 and not to be missed Art Auction on the evening of Saturday 26th October 2019! This is the ‘main event’ of art and a great opportunity to purchase some incredible quality kids artwork. Not to be missed!

There will be lots of fun work to do leading up to this event and would love your input as it’s parental involvement that can allow this to happen.  

Michelle has got fantastic plans to work with the kids with a focus on creating individual and group works. As always she would welcome your assistance and involvement. 

For parents interested in FOTA and helping in the classroom Michelle will facilitate two Parents Workshops as follows. 

Learning FELTING’    on Wednesday 29th May 11am til 1pm.
Learning GEL PRINTING’   on Wednesday 31st July 9am-11am

Please RSVP for these so Michele knows how many peple to set up for: glen.iris.ps@edumail.vic.gov.au 

Mrs Freeland Small would embrace parental help in the classroom throughout the year. Times TBC.

FOTA invites all GIPS parents or carers who are interested in helping or supporting our kids, school and teachers with art and performing arts. It additionally offers parents a great opportunity to create and relate!
