Welcome to my Page!
Welcome back to a new semester and I am back at Marrs! The last nine weeks, I was up at the jr. high filling in for their art teacher while she stayed home with her newborn baby.
I am still missing a few signatures. If you never received this form, please let me know and I will send an email with a link.
Make sure you either sign you child up or bring in the permission form for artsonia.com! I am excited to post your child's wonderful artwork for all to see our artistic Marrs students!
All grades are currently working on Evansville Philharmonic's Symphony in Color contest. What is this? Every year this is offered to area tri-state elementary schools. Which is put on by the Philharmonic. They will judge and selected winners will have a chance to accept their award at concert. Last year, Marrs had a few selected to go on in the final round. Who knows what this year will bring!
This is Marrs second year to participate. I am given a selected piece of music and information about the composer. The student's listen to the music and then interpret into a piece of art work.
This year composer is French man, Maurice Ravel (1875-1937,) and I was given two music selections, "Enchanted Garden" and "Laideronette."
When finished, I will select 10 pieces, 2 from each grade, to go on to be judged by the Philharmonic. Kindergarten is participating but the select piece will be just exhibit.
K-4th will be working on African-American artwork.
5th Grade will be starting their ceiling tile art work.
