Sauvie Island Academy students express creativity during inaugural 'Sauvie Island Paint Night'
A group of 24 students at Sauvie Island Academy participated in the inaugural Sauvie Island Paint Night Friday, Feb. 5.
The event was organized by Kim Henrie, an art teacher at Sauvie Island Academy, who said she wanted to create an event that would help fund the schools art program.
For $20, students who participated in paint night recieved a canvas to paint on and step-by-step directions from Henrie about how to paint a sunrise scene. Children from kindergarten through sixth grade participated, with students adding their own style to the paintings.
Henrie plans to organize more paint night events and make the fundraiser an annual occasion.
