The Heart of Portland
We at Capitol Hill have lots to be proud of in the art room.
What is the Heart of Portland - arts showcase?
This is a new and to be annual event to celebrate the arts programs in all the PPS schools.
Please note: The art work of a dancing figure is by our own Diana R and was chosen for the poster art. Our Diini painted the heart to be used in the logo. Yay and honors to them!
There will be dance and musical performances as well as a K-12 art show on the night of 2/29/15.
The whole event is ONE night only, so please plan to attend.
Each school can submit 1 piece of art. Of course choosing is an impossible task, so one has to just barrel ahead.
3rd grader Izayah G. will have his painting displayed.
As art teachers we have a TOSA (teacher on special assignment) to support all the arts teachers K-12-all disciplines! She, Kristen Brayson has organized this "Arts Showcase" to direct attention to the existing and burgeoning arts programs within our schools. It is a HUGE job and we are all happy to have someone championing the arts at PPS headquarters. Her position too is a result of the Arts Tax, so thank you again tax paying citizens!
ps- The city hall art show is still in the works. Specifics will be coming into focus in the next week or so. We will be able to show several student pieces there and it will highlight the new visual arts in the K-5 schools.
