THE ANNUAL ART GALA

Each year, our students have an opportunity to showcase their work to the public in the Annual SBH Art Gala. During this event, students explain the process of making each piece of art, what their inspiration was, and the materials and techniques they learned about during the process. The Art Gala is free and open to the public and is our biggest event of the year!

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT

Making crafts is an expensive hobby! SBHS provides most of the materials and uses recycled materials to help the environment. We encourage parents to help with the cost of the materials by donating $25.00 toward the expense of everyday activities. Contact Mrs. Santamaria for more information: asantamaria@sallieb.net

INSTRUCTOR

Hello, I am Mrs. Santamaria and I love making crafts! I cannot remember a time when I wasn’t creating or crafting. I inherited this love of craft-making from my talented mother. As a young girl, I would spend many hours making all kinds of crafts with recycled materials.

I would design doll clothing from scraps of fabric found around our house. As I grew older, I began exploring numerous crafts such as flower arranging, hand sewing, foam crafts, wreath-making, hair bows, centerpieces, embroidery, party decorations and more.

I love Arts and Crafts because I enjoy making things with my hands and being creative. I share this joy with my students and love seeing their creations and how they express themselves through their work.
