Trading Cards Arrive!!
The 7th Grade art students participated in the Bicentennial Art Trading Cards Project in conjunction with the Alabama Arts Alliance! They enjoyed creating trading cards depicting areas of interest, beauty and rich heritage in North Western Alabama. The students' finished cards were mailed to the Alabama Arts Alliance where they would be distributed to students in different areas of Alabama. After about a month, we received our trading cards! The cards were from students in Montgomery, Clanton, and Auburn. Included in the many images depicted on the cards were that of the "Giant Peach" in Clanton, Auburn University's Samford Hall, the State Capitol in Montgomery, and scenes of the Alabama River. A fun and educational project!
