Attention all Art Fans! FINE ARTS FRIDAY returns this week! We have an action-packed Bob Ross-themed FINE ARTS FRIDAY activity planned that you won't want to miss. Stop by to listen to Bob’s dulcet voice as several brave PHS teachers follow one of his video demonstrations and attempt to paint a fully finished landscape in 30 minutes! You can also enter a raffle for a chance to win a fun art-making project of your own. So tell all of your friends & don’t forget to come on down to the Falcon Foyer before, during or after lunch to get your fill of “happy little clouds” to brighten up a rainy week. See you then!
