The eighth graders of Cedar Park will be exploring a unit on the American Civil War. The CPMS Art Literacy Program will expand on this topic by studying the Civil War photographer, Mathew Brady.  If you’ve seen a Civil War photo, it was probably done by Mathew Brady or one of his photographers.

Art Lit Volunteers will take a portrait of your student(s) in the style of Mathew Brady.  Costumes are supplied by Art Lit.  Photos will begin during Advisory (this Friday morning).  More dates will be added.

The schedule for this week is:

Friday, March 23 - Ms. Barbis Advisory (8th graders only)

  • If your child DOES NOT want their portrait taken, they may opt-out.
  • If your child needs extra time, email the Art Lit coordinators to set up a time when it is not hectic.

Boys, please wear dark pants (chino-type) or jeans.  This also goes for girls planning to fight in the war.

Volunteer shifts are available at myvolunteerpage.com.  

Questions can be directed to MaryBeth Piccirilli & Daphne Teals, Art Literacy Coordinators (Cpms.art.lit@gmail.com).

Cedar Park Art Literacy is made possible by the generous 5K donations of our CPMS community members.
