Re: school art exhibitions

With the difficulty of having parents attend almost anything anymore I now
have my art show the same night as the music concert. I schedule my show to
begin 30 minutes before the show. Not ideal, but I want parents to see their
student's work displayed. Another idea might be to have something for them
to do - maybe have students teach their parents how to... or maybe have
child and parent draw each other.
