Palms Middle School

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.

Classes take place on Mondays from 3:05-4:10pm for eleven sessions. Students will spend some sessions with Ms. Purdy and some with Ms. Goldin. The program will culminate with a wonderful Art Show in May, 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!

Students will be accepted to the program on a first-come, first-served basis. Space is limited. To apply, pick up a sign-up sheet in the Main Office, Magnet Office, Room 162, or Room 165. Return it to either room.

The Spring 2017 Art in the Afternoon program is sponsored by Friends of Palms. In some past years the program was underwritten by FOX Entertainment.

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.
