Zanker Elementary's Parent Teacher Association hosted a Canvas and Cookies Night for approximately 215 students and their parents March 28 in the school's multipurpose room. Canvases were purchased from Michael's and easels were created by Milpitas High School students from Stuft Pizza pizza boxes.
Sixth grade teacher Rebeca Rios - who has provided art enrichment previously - led the instruction, with her work of a giraffe being displayed via Chromecast through a projector. Cookies were donated and gathered by the school's PTA, who also donated canvas aprons to the art enrichment program in conjunction with the night. All the paint and brushes were donated to the art program as well.
