Dabs of creativity: Students rewarded with artistic outing
Classes with top attendance get an 'Arty Party' at Quinlan Arts Center
Fair Street Elementary third grader Brisa Loyola, 9, reaches for a stamp to make an impression in her piece of clay Friday at the Quinlan Visual Arts Center during a class field trip. The class had the best attendance in the first semester of the year for their school.
Although learning is its own reward, groups of local students are getting an added incentive for showing up to school regularly. The Quinlan Visual Arts Center has spent the last few days rewarding the class with the best attendance records at each of Gainesville City Schools System's elementary schools. The winning classes were given an individual Arty Attendance Party at the Quinlan.
