Art in the Afternoon

Art in the Afternoon is a free after-school class for Palms Middle School students interested in a directed hands-on art experience.

In 2018, classes take place on Thursdays from 3:05-4:10 pm for ten sessions beginning February 8th. Ms. Purdy and Ms. Goldin will teach five sessions each.

The program will culminate with a wonderful Art Show on Thursday, May 24th, attended by our resident artists, their families, friends, faculties and members of the community. Attendees are also treated to musical performances from members of our band and orchestras!

Because space is limited, students will be accepted to the program on a first-come, first-served basis.

To apply, download ASAP the 2018 Art in the Afternoon Application here,  or pick one up from any of the following locations, where completed applications may also be turned in no later than January 31st:

Magnet Office

Ms. Goldin, Room 162

The Spring 2018 Art in the Afternoon program is sponsored by Friends of Palms.

End-of-Year Art Show

At the end of the semester, student artists in our Art in the Afternoon elective exhibit their artwork at a "juice and cheese" reception in the School Library. All Palms families are invited. There is live chamber music and a lucky numbers auction to raise money for the arts at Palms.

Please join the resident artists from our Art in the Afternoon program to view their work and enjoy classical music performed by band and orchestra students.
