ArtReach is TMS Advanced Art's annual service-learning project. This year the middle school students chose to focus their ArtReach project on helping and working with senior citizens in our area. In addition to the collaboration with WMSC's art class, the Telstar students did oral history interviews, investigated issues important to seniors, and worked with adults and elders on musical collaborations.
The ArtReach Jamboree & Student Art Sale held last Thursday, December 6, featured a student art exhibit and sale, a showcase of service-learning projects connecting youth and elders, and a Jamboree concert focusing on the musical expression of older generations. Our WMSC Holiday Party conflicted with the Jamboree concert, but for those of us who missed it, Melissa Prescott has posted a YouTube video of the flash mob the middle school students staged. Check it out - it's really cool!
Proceeds from the event were given to the Oxford County Meals on Wheels program.
