For the third year in a row an impressive number of students and family members attended Oak Meadow Elementary School’s annual Art Walk.

On the evening of Feb. 23 attendees viewed artistic masterpieces created by Oak Meadow students. They enjoyed projects created with a wide variety of materials and mediums inspired by artists like Claude Monet, Winslow Homer, Pablo Picasso and Dale Chihuly.  Students produced charming ceramic clay projects, dynamic “glass” sculptures, inspiring self portraits and fascinating wire sculptures.

The event was held not only for students to display their magnificent creations, but also to raise funds to benefit the Oak Meadow Meet the Masters Art program, an independently funded program run by volunteer parents. Support for the program was tremendous and clearly evident as families purchased compliment cards to place on individual student’s work and sponsored individual classes. Along with the students’ art, there were artists in action, crafts to make and baked goods to purchase.

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 should be made out to Oak Meadow Elementary Foundation
