The art pieces on display were created by Middle School and Upper School students at Whitefield Academy, a Christ-centered college preparatory school serving more than 650 students in PreK-4 through grade 12. Whitefield Academy is located on a 75-acre campus in the Smyrna/Vinings area of northwest Atlanta.
The Whitefield arts program encourages the exploration of artistic talents in a supportive and enjoyable environment -- recognizing God as the giver of these talents. The purpose of the Whitefield fine arts program is to allow student self-expression, as well as to inspire students to create sincere and significant work. Whitefield Academy believes that art enables students to reach their community as no other vehicle. Through visual art, dance, music, singing, and drama, students may communicate in a manner that transcends cultural, social and economic boundaries, and speaks to the heart of man
Barbara has always been drawn to Santa's. When I was a baby, my parents purchased one of the Santa's with the Coke bottle from Rich's. I loved it, so I guess that started it!
The ones on display represent different parts of my collection - some are considered collectibles (the Clothtique ones) and others are from different parts of the country that I've collected when I travel. I have numerous Santa tree ornaments and artwork as well.
I have collected the Santas for more than 20 years. I love the traditional ones the best and the #1 requirement is thatthey have a kind face! I look for additions when I travel and at all stores. Some have been gifts. Enjoy!
