Young Artist Showcase deadlines soon

(Continued)

The showcase “is meant to be a serious, but non-threatening environment for students to try out something new or be rewarded for something they already do well. The goal is to encourage continued involvement with the arts throughout their lifetimes.”

Writing coordinator Jeff Hartz says, “It is nice to live in a community that values the arts and gives students the opportunity for recognition for their creative pursuits. For this to work, it is important for volunteers to step up and help organizations like the RAA make these opportunities happen, and it is also important for students to step up and take a chance by entering one of the contests.”

Art

The signup deadline is March 10. There are two categories, fine art and photography. A student is allowed one submission in each. If a student is enrolled in AP art, he or she may submit a body of work of up to four pieces, according to coordinator Roberta Cook.

Judging occurs on four dates: SLS, March 13; OA, March 15; BHS, March 17; photography and BMS, March 19.

Works by ribbon and trophy winners will be on display at the Batesville public library during April. A public reception to honor artists and teachers is scheduled for Sunday, April 13, from 2-4 p.m. Volunteers are needed to provide refreshments.

Cook notes, “Our judges all have four-year Bachelor of Arts degrees and several have Master of Fine Arts degrees. They all have professional art careers or are art teachers.” Info: rcwcook@gmail.com.

Dance

The signup deadline is March 14 and judging takes place April 25 in the BHS auditorium, reports coordinator Bonnie Pratt. There is no limit on the number of dances per dancer.

She says, “I encourage all types of dancers to enter. We have lots of students who study dance at local dance studios in Batesville and Greensburg, but also some who travel outside our area to take classes and also some who may not do formal training, but just love to dance.” Pratt suggests, “Arrive on time for the judging, bring your music on an iPhone, iPad or mp3 player and be prepared to dance.”
