Students benefit from arts exposure


Young Artist Showcase

Established in 1992, the program recognizes students in grades 6-12 who excel in art, music, writing, dance and drama and was chaired last year by Eric Linville, who was assisted by other volunteers. Professional judges are enlisted to judge the entries in each discipline. Last year the RAA awarded over 100 trophies and ribbons at each school’s end-of-year awards program along with the sports and academic awards. Trophy-winning students also have their names placed on a special plaque at each school.

AIE Evening Series

The idea behind the series, coordinated by Anne Amrhein, “is to bring in some of the wonderful artists in residence and visiting artists that we sponsor in the schools during the day and sponsor them in the evening for a workshop or performance for parents and community members.” Four were scheduled in 2012-13: Will Hillenbrand presented at Family Literacy Night for K-5, Don Edwards organized a Clayworks Community Night, Adam and Jarom Sidwell discussed working on special affects and animation for blockbuster movies and Dr. Milt Allen conducted BHS and BMS bands for a public concert.

In addition to Rockwood, many AIE volunteers made these programs successful: Batesville Community School Corp. teachers Amy McCabe, Mary K. Cambron, Leon Enneking, Anne Amrhein, Rebecca Davies, Grace Kontur, Eric Stauffer, Laura Hicks, Carla Thomas, Lori Spears, Erica Vogel, Rachael Berkemeier; OA teachers Pam Burroughs and Kris Wampler; and SLS teacher Hilary Carvitti.

In addition to RAA, funding support came from the John A. Hillenbrand Foundation, Columbus Area Arts Council, Indiana Arts Commission, National Endowment for the Arts,John W. Hillenbrand Vision Fund for Quality Education, Rockwood Foundation, PTO funds from the schools involved and BCSC. Rockwood also thanked organizations that supported the RAA programs: city of Batesville, Rising Sun Community Foundation, Franklin County Community Foundation, Hill-Rom and Ripley County Community Foundation.
