7th and 8th graders started the year in Art with a TASK Party. TASK Parties allow participants to play in open-ended activities and to interact with each other and with a variety of materials to create things. Each student draws a piece of paper with a task on it and the fun begins. If they finish a task they draw a new task to work on. Examples of tasks are: make a unicorn horn and wear it, make a pet and walk it, etc. Oliver Herring held the first TASK Party in London in 2002.
