We are excited to present the 4th Annual Art Show at Collins on Thursday, May 18, 2023 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm in the GLC and art room. Come check out our STEAM projects, sculptures, and ceramics!
There will be over 1000 objects, sculptures and creations on view. Each student, TK to 5th grade, will showcase a sculpture and a ceramic object.
A “Magical Forest” Glow in the Dark Gallery awaits the visitors. Hint: wear white or neon colors to glow!
Art Ambassadors and Keepers of the Glow in the Dark Gallery: This year the 2nd/3rd, 3rd and 4th graders will be our Honorary Ambassadors of the art show and greet the families.
Come and marvel at the amazing artwork your child/children have worked on in the art room during this school year.

Students will walk, run, skip, or dance their way around our 1/5-mile track to earn money for our school. This fundraiser will help our Collins PTA in their efforts to fund art, assemblies, and other enrichment programs for our students. We're also fundraising to build a track around our school field!
