a fine arts christmas

We are very blessed to have an incredible fine arts department at our school.  I hosted our faculty for our annual appreciation luncheon just recently and couldn't help snapping some pictures of this fabulous space while I was there.

The luncheon set-up wasn't fancy, especially since we were dealing with folding chairs and tables (and the wrong size tablecloths!  I thought the tables would be rectangular, so I cut the tablecloths into 2 & it still didn't quite cover).

But I'm going to be brave & share here, even though it was far from perfect :)

Our catering staff at school handled all of the food ~ thank goodness!

This tree is decorated with Christmas cards ~ all of the cards feature original Christmas artwork done by the students.

Now on to the fun parts of the building!  You never know what you're going to find in here, and I love that.  See the circus below?

The tree in the lobby of the fine arts building is always stunning, with lots of bold color & handmade paper decorations.

A view from the lobby looking up.

This cross can be seen from the front doors.  I love this piece.

More student sculpture...

And now for my very-favorite piece of art on campus… the stairwell art in the fine arts building.  Can you tell what its made of?  Look closely.  It is stunning from a distance!

Paint sample cards!!  Genius!

I'll wrap up this post by sharing something I'm grateful for ~ my husband's boss sent me these flowers, thanking me for my support of him in his job.  Is that the sweetest?!

Merry Christmas!
