The National Art Honor Society hosted its second virtual paint night in an effort to raise funds for Sunrise Day Camp. NAHS President Samantha Rosenberg and her family are sponsoring the annual walk for the same purpose to be held this spring. Samantha has worked at Sunrise for the past two summers and is very active in raising awareness of this amazing camp for children living with cancer and their siblings.
With the last paint night held on zoom being such a success, the National Art Honors Society decided to hold another event. The event took place on Tuesday, February 9th at 6:30 pm. For the 2nd virtual paint night, NAHS centered the theme around Valentine’s Day and the winter season. Like the last paint night, there were organized take-home kits that included paint, brushes, and a canvas that students, parents, and teachers could pick up to participate in the virtual event. Because everyone could paint from the comfort of their own home, there was a large turnout; there were about 40 participants which consisted of teachers, community members, NAHS members, and their families! This painting project appealed to a broader audience and not just art students because it was step by step and easy to follow. As a result, participants of all ages had a successful outcome, and they definitely had fun. All of the proceeds from this event went to Sunrise Day Camp. The event was a huge success, and NAHS hopes to host one more virtual paint night in the spring!
