We too have a show that is up for only one night. One thing we did to save monies this year is offerred the students community service hours to bring in one tray of baked goods per person. It had to be something servable such as cookies cup, cakes, brownies etc. Then we had students sign up to serve for service hours also. The students dressed in black and white or all black and rotated around the show with trays serving people. This cut our costs to less than half for the refreshments for the show. The students had such a great time they were there for the entire night. This also drew in the students friends to view the show and created a better communal tone. Good luck.

I have a senior grade 12 class class right now, and am looking for some 'new
to me' ideas for paintings, and mixed media/painting projects.
I have a variety of surfaces that I want them to use....some large pieces of
massonite board that I thought we would do some
impressionism/post-impressionism/expressionism style paintings on ( we went
out sketching in September, and I would like the students to use those
images in the first project which also reflects the beginning of art history
units), some medium sized canvases, and enough 6x8 wood panels (1 inch deep)
so that each student can have 3.....
Any favourite projects out there that you would be willing to share??
