Your student has been working really hard on a special art project at school, and they can’t wait to show it to you! Our school has teamed up with Art to Remember. They transfer student artwork onto keepsake products like mugs, phone cases, and necklaces. Your student will be bringing home an order form with THEIR artwork printed on the cover. You can order from over 50 products featuring their work. The keepsakes also make great gifts for family and friends. Plus, every purchase helps raise money for our school's art program!
