North Atlanta took its art to the public on Oct. 21 and 22 as members of the North Atlanta’s National Art Honor Society volunteered at the 2nd annual Brookhaven Art Festival at Brookhaven Park.

The family friendly festival takes place every third week in October and features more than 140 participating artists who display artwork including paintings, photography, sculptures and other art in assorted mediums.  

North Atlanta’s National Art Honor Society Members attended the festival to interact with families and their children as well as to display their art and to promote art education in the community. It was the first time members had participated in the event.

Students at the North Atlanta booth primarily focused on interacting with the children of festival-goers with easy-to-grasp colorful activities. Attending society members set up the booth and did all the art prep work before crowds descended. In their artistic efforts, the group raised money for Project Sunflower, a group that that makes therapeutic art for people who are recuperating from health issues. Visitors to the North Atlanta booth made donations and a total of around $400 was raised for the charity. Even Principal Curtis Douglass participated in the fun by doing some art while talking with the people visiting the booth.

“Giving back to the community is one of the tenants of our organization so I am so proud of those who were here to do this,” said art instructor Kim Landers.

Junior Briton Cole was one of the club members who participated and she said it was a wholly positive experience, even if it was a lot of work. “We got up really early and it was a really hectic day but it was all worth it to see the smiles on kids’ faces,” she said.

Community is considered a major part of the National Art Society Members at North Atlanta, along with leadership, connectivity and advocacy. Participating in the festival allowed members to be apart of the community and show the impact art education can have.
