Which is your favorite bird house? With two granta from Disney, Wells Fargo, Horace Mann and several donors on Donorschoose.org, the Art Department supplied the bird houses and feeders to Mrs. Gonzalez's 6th Grade Science class! "Creating an Audubon bird habitat @Disney #1 and #2" provided us with bird houses, bird feeders, binoculars, Watercolor Travel Kits and an IPad. Each design is so unique! A special upcoming project with the bird houses and feeders will hopefully be realized the next school year between Udall and Butler! More science and art collaboration is in store! Can't wait to see this! Wonderful job, 6th Graders! (Oops, now 7th Graders)
Check out our Art projects on Donorschoose.org. You can support your students' artistic talents by donating to art projects they love! And encourage them to practice their drawing over the Summer Break. Go to: http://www.donorschoose.org/we-teach/536609 Your children will THANK YOU!

2nd grade creative art student, Pricela, was always offering to help in the art room. Her bright cheerful smile was such a friendly sight! She was a big help to her classmates, too! And she makes beautiful art. Congratulations, Pricela!
Talented 8th Grader, Joshua Soto, designed an awesome sculpture for his Language Arts project. He came to art in his free time to work on the design, and then glazed it for the kiln. We think it is special! Good work, Joshua!
Middle School Art student, Jannia, designed a new Butler mural. It's first appearance was at the 8th Grade Graduation Ceremonies near the stage. Next, Jannia co-ordinated hand-print designs with Ms. Flores's first grade class on the last day of school. (A picture of the finished mural will be coming soon!) Awesome Jannia!

Thanks to a grant from Donorschoose.org, Justin Pierce was a visiting artist to Butler. He even volunteered to come back and teach art on his own time. Butler art students love his style and this was a very successful Art event.
