The Davis High senior committee and the senior class officers along with their advisory teacher Tracey Meade, come together and worked hard to come up with the amazing idea of “Painting with Bob Ross” for the latest senior activity. The final decision was made with a vote that the committee made. It was held in the school cafeteria on the 20th of March.
“Senior Committee got together during home room and they thought of all sour of funny activities and came up with it, and we just needed to fit in the schedule.” said Ms. Tracey.
Since there were around 50 students at the activity, they took a big TV that belonged to the SBO’s and the infamous painter Bob Ross was broadcast to teach the 50 students the techniques of great painting.
All of them started with a 11×14 construction paper canvas, gathered paint brushes, and a well chosen episode to incorporate all the beautiful paints that were brought.
“The funniest part is the expectation of finishing three episodes but as we had to keep pausing it so everyone could catch up and understand, we didn’t even get though one.” Tracey said while chuckling.
It was cool to see a great idea brought to life with the help of the SBOs and senior committee. The turn out was better than expected and everyone seemed like they had lot of fun. “We may not have gotten through as many episodes as we planned, but people had a great time in there” states Scott Swain.
Well, it seems like the idea turned out great. If you are a junior or a sophomore, let’s hope this becomes a tradition so all of us can be able to enjoy it.
