“Arts for
Life Day”
at the
Portsmouth Middle School

Sponsored by the Portsmouth
Middle School PTO

 

“Since we want our children to understand
that the arts are a natural and valuable part of life and not
simply a subject to be studied in a class, we would like to
invite members of the Portsmouth Arts Guild community to come to
our school on Friday, April 26 and share the ways in which
the arts have enriched their own lives.”

-Sue
Farrier, Portsmouth Middle School PTO 

 

Whether you call yourself an artist, an artisan,
or a crafter, you will be welcome. All you need is a willingness
to share your art. For details on the event and how you can
participate, please send an e-mail to Sue Farrier at suefarrier@cox.net.
