An Art Teacher’s Halloween Challenge


Halloween is probably one of the most creative holidays of the year, so it should come as no surprise that it is one of Ms. Stabnick’s — Sprague’s fabulous art teacher’s — favorite days.    Thus, she is holding the Sprague Halloween Challenge = having students make their own costume this year for the school parade on Monday October 31st.

Halloween is not about buying a costume, it is about getting a little creative and a little silly to invent a character for one super celebration.  She suggests looking through home art supplies, closets, recycling or even go down to the Wellesley Swap.

Over the years, parade spectators have enjoyed seeing robots made from boxes and even a plate of spaghetti and meatballs fashioned with yarn and nerf balls. She suggests, for those who already have a store bought costume – make a prop!  If you have a pirate costume, build a parrot.

Stabnick is challenging all students to capture the creative spirit of Halloween and in return they will receive a prize at the parade.

Happy, Happy Halloween –  Go get clever, creepy and creative at your school!
