More than 600 students and family members of Oak Meadow Elementary attended the second annual Oak Meadow Art Walk, a visual arts showcase of all Oak Meadow students’ work.

The Feb. 24 event featured masterpieces on display for one evening only. The projects were created with a wide variety of material and mediums inspired by artists like Gustav Klimt, Henri Rousseau and Andy Warhol. Oak Meadow students enjoyed creating beautiful ceramic clay projects, creative wire sculptures, dynamic plaster statues and shimmering tiles made with acrylic paint.

Attendees strolled the beautiful gallery as art critics. Families purchased compliment cards to place on individual students’ works as a way to raise funds to benefit the Oak Meadow Meet the Masters Art Program, an independently funded program run by volunteer parents.

Donations are always accepted to help continue this educational and enjoyable program. Anyone is able to help by sending donations to the Oak Meadow administration office at 7701 Silva Valley Parkway, El Dorado Hills 95762. Checks can be made out to Oak Meadow Elementary Foundation.
