Fort Smith Public Schools asks community for handprint art


FORT SMITH, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Fort Smith Public Schools is asking students, families, teachers, staff and community members to help share a little joy during the COVID-19 pandemic by creating handprint art for those on the frontline caring for the Fort Smith community.

Anyone can participate, and FSPS will distribute the artwork throughout the community.

To participate, trace and color your hand print.

Write “We are all in this TOGETHER!” as the greeting, and sign the artwork with your first name only.

If you are a FSPS student, include your grade with your signature.

You can begin working on your handprint creation immediately.

Drop your hand print art in identifiable boxes at each elementary school from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. during Grab-and-Go meal pick up beginning Tuesday, April 14.

Artwork will be disinfected after pick-up and handled safely.

“We’ve been trying to find some cool activities for them to do while they’re at home and this is one way where they can be involved and give back to the community and feel like they’re doing something really impactful and meaningful for those who are serving our community,” said Christina Williams, Coordinator Public Info at Fort Smith Public Schools.
