Habersham Gardens Hosts FMSA Art Show

Habersham Gardens Hosts FMSA Art Show

MIDTOWN -- Habersham Gardens, located in Midtown Atlanta, welcomed fall with an art show by students of First Montessori School of Atlanta. Approximately 185 colorful pinwheels, sunflowers and seed packets were displayed during the evening reception.

Art Teacher Theresa Dean mixed history with art, exposing students to early American art and how seed packets were originally produced. Since many farmers in early America couldn't read, packets included both images and text. When designing their artwork, some FMSA students got very creative and made up names for their plants, she said.

The students drew sunflowers, outlined them with black glue and then painted them with water colors.

"This is the third year we've worked with Habersham Gardens on this fun event," said Head of School Jerri King.
