Sidewalks showcase student art

on November 3, 2017

Sponsored by the Art Club and the Student Council, the sidewalk art event is held in the fall and again in the spring every year, and is a middle school tradition. On Thursday, November 2, approximately forty student artists met at 1:15 p.m. Each individual student or team of students was assigned a square of concrete on the sidewalk at the main entrance to the middle school. Layout and design was the first task. All the artwork was completed in time for the late bus at 5:00 p.m. Awards were presented in three categories:

  • scary design
  • original art
  • fall themes

The difficult job of judging fell to art teacher Mr. Witte. Winners received either a coupon for free admission to a middle school REC activity, free candy at a REC activity or free ice cream. Cheers and applause greeted the winners as they headed for the buses.
