Corbett Student Art Festival

Corbett School District will be putting on an all-school Student Art Festival on the evening of Friday, March 1st, in the MPB.  Featured art will be the creative work of elementary, middle, and high school students.  Works of art will be available for purchase by silent auction and a select few pieces will be actively auctioned.

The Festival is being put on by the Corbett High Communicare Team, a community service club at the high school.  Communicare is a program sponsored by the Harold and Arlene Schnitzer Care Foundation focused on helping students to learn about philanthropy and charitable giving in their communities.  The students are challenged to earn $500 on their own, and if they are successful, they earn a grant for $10,000 that they must allocate to non-profit organizations in their community.

This year the Communicare Team has chosen to support nonprofit community organizations focused on visual arts, performing arts and cinematography.  They decided to put on a Student Art Festival to celebrate the artistic achievements of their peers, while earning the privilege of distributing the Schnitzler Care Foundation grant.

Parents and community members can support the efforts of the Communicare Team by encouraging their students to submit works of art and joining us at the Festival on March 1.
