KEC has teamed up with Original Works, the #1 art based program in the country. The Original Works program allows you to memoralize your child's artwork by having it reproduced onto a variety of professional, full color products. These products range from magnets, mugs and mouse pads, to phone cases, t-shirts, tote bags and tiles. The resulting products make unique gifts that are practical for any season or occasion. The artwork is currently being created in Art class at Kaposia.
Further details will be sent home at conferences. Order forms are due by March 21. Please make checks payable to KEC. Orders will be sent home with students by the middle of April.
