Theme this year:

“Messages for the Visionaries: Class of 2020"


Our hearts go out to the wonderful class of 2020 who have worked very hard to get to this point in their educational journey.  They will not be able to celebrate as a class on stage this year so as a Mustang family we will honor them in any way we can. As artists, let's celebrate their accomplishment in a creative way..



Chalk is available to participants and will be handed out on Monday 5/25/20.  Colors are limited. You are welcome to purchase your own set but please make sure it is sidewalk chalk or chalk pastel and NOT oil pastels. 



All drafts need to be submitted to Mr. Martinez no later than Friday 5/22 for approval. Drafts should be in color if you have access to color pencils, crayons etc.



     Done by staff and faculty. All art will be placed on the Arleta Website. Winners will be announced on 6/5/20.
