Up until February 9th, the art club will be earning money taking pictures in the art room.  For one person it’s one dollar, and for couples it’s two.  Faculty and students had been getting their pictures taken for a great cause over the past few weeks because Mrs. Cockerham is using the money for a trip for members of art classes or art club.

Mrs Cockerham said, “I was talking to Ms. Profitt and we were trying to figure out something to earn money for our trip.  We knew that Valentine’s Day is coming up, and since there won’t be a dance this year then we thought why not take pictures.  The last day to get pictures will be the 9th, so hopefully we will want a good amount by then.  Anyone could come by anytime before school, or during class between 1st-4th period.  It took me about four hours to do the backdrop.  I thought this was something I should work hard on.  Our plan is to go to Blacksburg to an art gallery with a famous artist, but we need enough money for the gas, food, and entry.  So I think this was an excellent idea to earn enough money so the students won’t have to pay too much.”

An educational trip would be great for the art classes, considering there is never many trips.  The backdrop was made completely by Mrs Cockerham on her own time, and is perfect for pictures, so go get your pictures made for the art club!
