Jan Patrick is the art teacher and Cynthia Hewell the music teacher for all three students.

The contest was open to all students in the central Arkansas area in conjunction with a children’s concert by the ASO “Landscapes In Music” held Friday, Nov. 13 at Robinson Auditorium. The winning artworks were on display at the Robinson Center for the Children’s concert and the winning artists were presented their awards on stage at the event.

“Each school who participated could send in five visual artworks to the ASO,” mentioned Patrick. “We only sent three artworks since we were working on our art curriculum and only had time to create three landscape projects.”
