             Greater Latrobe Elementary Art Teachers, Kerry Hudock-BES, Nathan Bolby-MVES and Natalee Palmer-LES hosted the 10th Annual 3rd Grade Arts Symposium on Jan 22-25, 2017 at Greater Latrobe Senior High School in the Center for Student Creativity.
            This event is intended to expose all 3rd grade students in our district to new art forms and local practicing artists.  The students were divided into groups and rotated every hour, creating a unique project with each artist.  The artists included: Tricia Campbell where students printed with real and rubber fish, Ann Gravell where students sculpted a clay shaker, Sarah Hunter where students painted an Impresstionistic sunrise, and La Verne Kemp where students felted a wool piece of art work. 

    Students from all three schools showed much enthusiasm and were excited to develop their creative abilities with these local artists and where the students' focus all day was making and creating art! They were able to take away not only some new and exciting art experiences but also some new friends.

            This event is a part of the Greater Latrobe Art Series and is made possible by the generous support of the McFeely –Rogers Foundation.
