Simply Charming Art Car

A SPARK School Park Program official and a popular accessories and jewelry retailer addressed Spring Branch ISD Board of Trustees recently in praise of a Northbrook Middle School art project that led to several trophies in the recent Houston Art Car Parade.

Kathleen Ownby with the SPARK, School Park Program, and Patty Fadhouli with Charming Charlie, the women’s accessories and jewelry retailer, spoke at the May 20 Board of Trustees meeting. Ownby publicly praised the work of students and a Northbrook Middle art teacher, Stephanie Walton, who led students to decorate her first car, a 1997 Mitsubishi.

It was covered in beads from Charming Charlie to create an award-winning Art Car Parade entry. Walton displayed her trophies during the recent Board meeting.

The “Simply Charming Dragon Fly Car” created by Walton, her special needs and Art Club students, staff members and others, won second place as Best Youth Car and as the Best Daily Driver Car in the Art Car Parade held on May 11.

The fashion accessories retailer Charming Charlie donated colored beads and many damaged jewelry pieces, all of which were sorted and glued onto Walton’s donated car. The retailer has also worked with the SPARK program to create collages and other student art work out of damaged materials, including at several SBISD schools.
