For the Guerilla Arts students at Garfield Terrace, an open house means free food. Students jumped at the chance to have free pizza and candy – even if it meant having to listen to adults.
The purpose of the event was to tell the kids about the calendar project Guerilla Arts is launching. As part of Gabe’s Parental Involvement curriculum, students will have the chance to take their pictures with their parent, favorite relative, or caregiver, at the computer center, as a way of having the whole family involved with Guerilla Arts. Those photos will make their way into a community calendar.
The project was well received, and the kids were very enthusiastic – so much so that several of the girls wanted to do a performance. They picked their favorite song (Justin Bieber!). The boys didn’t seem too impressed, but the girls didn’t care.
