A local Idaho Falls business and Skyline High School students got together today to set up for their Halloween Spook Garden.
At a place where you want to go to relax and get a message, Dr. Karie Jonak has agreed to invite and help fund Skyline Art Students to create a tense Spooky Garden.
“They’ve been working on this project for about almost a month now, 3 weeks to a month. What we are doing is a community Halloween Party at the property, this is the Old Hatch House Property,” said Dr. Karie Jonak of 3 Rivers Health Care Center Naturopathic Doctor.
The Spooky Garden will be a place to bring your friends and family to see what these Skyline Students were able to help create.
“We decided we wanted to have a really fun Halloween Party. Alison said well I can bring out the students and it would be a great project for them. So we bought a bunch of supplies for them and they’ve been creating all these really cool things for on the property,” said Dr. Jonak.
Not only will there be a Spooky Garden to see but games and storytelling as well.
“For a long time I have been wanting to get the students art work out into the community and so when I was discussing it with Jasmine and Karie here they invited us out to be able to put our work out here,” said Mrs. Nobel the Art Teacher of Skyline High.
With this project some of the work were inspired by many of the student’s collaborative imaginations, from aliens to giant spiders. Even including a 10 foot replica of the Oogie Boogie Man, from the film “Nightmare Before Christmas.”
“We took five car loads yesterday full of art work for the students who are right here. And they showed up and now, they are putting it here in the environment so it’s really great to be able to take your art from the classroom and be able to put it out into the community. That’s a huge step,” said Nobel.
With this class effort they are hoping to bring the community together and see the works of these high school students.
“It’s a beautiful location and for the community to really kind of step up and really take an interest in the kids art work. It’s really exciting for them and everyone involved so it should be a real fun event for everyone,” said Mrs. Mayes the Art Teacher of Idaho Falls and Skyline.
