Hollyhock helps the arts flourish in local Frisco ISD schools
From the beautiful red metal flowers on Teel Parkway, to the 19-foot-tall “Auri Agoseris” sculpture in Dandelion Park, Hollyhock is home to a growing art collection created by professional artists from the Metroplex and throughout the nation.
Hollyhock is also committed to nurturing young artists in our local Frisco ISD schools, whether their passion is painting, singing, acting or any other kind of creative spirit.
In the past year, the community has sponsored an Artist in Residence program for 5th grade students at Newman Elementary, one of the highly regarded Frisco ISD schools attended by our youngest residents.
Working with the Visual Arts Guild of Frisco, Hollyhock sponsors artists who come into the classroom and provide hands-on lessons for young artists. The program’s first project was to create a painting with a raised plaster flower, employing an innovative mixed-media process.
This artful partnership with Frisco’s young student artists has also included:
Providing students at Newman Elementary with leather-bound sketchpads, to help build their daily drawing and observation skills, and record ideas for future artworks.
Sponsoring choir shirts for students at Trent Middle School, another school zoned to the community, as well as for Frisco ISD’s Pearson Middle School.
Sponsoring the major spring 2018 dramatic production by Lone Star High School’s popular Riot Theater troupe.
This spring, the Frisco Association for the Arts and local Frisco ISD students will help create a new original artwork for Hollyhock’s Fields House community center. The public will be invited to festivities surrounding this exciting project – we’ll keep you updated.
