Hartsook to Judge “Art at the Heart”

Noted personal trainer, April Hartsook, has volunteered to judge an art show on Friday, May 4, from 10am until 3:00pm, at Old Richmond Elementary School. The show is part of “Art at the Heart”, a local program that enhances children’s appreciation for different kinds of art.

Prizes will be awarded for the first place winner in each grade and in each category of art, with medals awarded for 2nd and 3rd place finishers, and participation ribbons for all students. In addition, a Best in Show prize will be awarded for k-2nd grade and 3rd-5th grade.

Contest categories will include drawing, painting, photography, clay, mosaic and literature.

“We want to give our children the experience of being artists, and in a fun environment. In addition to the contest, we’ll have a reception with music and snacks. We’ll also display all of the artwork along the walls, so that children will experience their work in a gallery type atmosphere”, said Kelly Melang, Art Teacher at Old Richmond Elementary. “Our school loves to show off the talent of these young artists, and, at the same time, demonstrate to them that Art is really at the Heart of Old Richmond Elementary”.
