Hey artists! 


What can 

you create 

today?





As you know, Bedford County Public Schools will be closed the remainder of the school year. While your child is at home, the following activities would be helpful but not required to continue their development in art. Please continue to send pictures and messages from the children.  I hope to see everyone soon!
