Fresh paint brushes, acrylic paint, new easels and blank canvasses … all the supplies needed for a quiet and creative evening of painting.
Roll Hill parents and students spent time in the art classroom one spring evening for Roll Hill’s first-ever painting party.
Inspired by the latest painting party trend, where groups socialize and paint a unique version of a sample picture, about ten parent-student pairs created their own version of a student silhouette in a graduation cap and gown against a multi-colored background.
“We chose this picture to paint today because one day you’ll be there,” said John Copenhaver, who led the painting session and gave one-on-one assistance to the parent-student pairs. “You’ll get to have this painting and every day it can be a reminder of what you’re going to do.”
Copenhaver, assistant principal at SCPA, is a painter and was formerly the art teacher at Roll Hill. He enjoys coming back to support after school programs, especially if it involves art.
“Anything for the students at Roll Hill,” he said.
