After months of working and designing, Sartartia Middle School (Fort Bend ISD) art students put the final details on their entry in the 24rd annual Orange Show Art Car Parade.
This is the 4th year SMS have participated in this event and they are the only school in FBISD that does participate. The event featured over 250 Art Cars, plus spectators and media from all over the world, making Houston ground zero of an international phenomenon.
“With this project, we have created some memories and opened up a new world of expression for our students”, said Mrs. Brenda Tomasello, art teacher at SMS. The students have worked as a team, used design skills and have been problem solving throughout the entire project.
The car was entitled “Carp” and was based on the children’s book – The Rainbow Fish. The book is best known for its morals about the value of being an individual and for the distinctive shiny foil scales of the Rainbow Fish- as can be seen by the shiny scales on “Carp”.
