Elementary classes with the best attendance in the first semester of the year from each city school receive an “Arty Attendance Party” as a free incentive-based field trip to Quinlan Visual Arts Center. The reward is part of the Partners in Education program between the arts center and the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce.
Students at the parties participate in easy one-fire hand projects, eat ice cream and go on a guided tour of the exhibitions on display at Quinlan. On March 24, Enota Multiple Intelligences Academy students painted elephants while Gainesville Exploration Academy students constructed elephant pottery pieces.
Other participating schools included Centennial Arts Academy, Fair Street International Baccalaureate World School and New Holland Knowledge Academy.
