Propel East 2nd Annual Arts Festival 2009/2010



Propel East 2nd Annual Arts Festival
Friday, May 14, 2010
6:00-9:00 pm
1611 Monroeville Avenue, Turtle Creek

Inspiration Museum

One exciting evening, featuring art and musical performances showcasing the talented students of Propel East. Over 800 pieces of art made by the 400+ students ranging in age from kindergarten to 8th grade will be displayed throughout the school alongside our permanent art installations. A busy schedule of musical performances will provide a soundtrack for Inspiration Museum, this year’s theme. Students studying piano and guitar in our instrumental music program will perform at scheduled times throughout the evening and our own student rock band “Kids in America” will provide an exciting finale to the event.

The Inspiration Museum features student art as well as an introduction to the artists that inspired it. Each project highlights a particular artist and a range of media and techniques. The National Standards for Visual Arts grades K – 8 require students to both: “understand the visual arts in relation to history and cultures” and “reflect upon and assess the characteristics and merits of their work and the work of others.” This annual exhibition of student work highlights how our curriculum achieves both of these goals. Student docents will lead tours throughout the evening to underscore this learning.

Our art room, Studio 101, will feature artwork inspired by this year’s PSSA artist Romare Bearden. Each year during PSSA’s Art teacher Alison Babusci teaches every K – 6th grader about a Pennsylvania Super Sensational Artist. Romare Bearden has ties to our city and his childhood memories of Pittsburgh will mingle with our student’s impressions of their city. Bearden was especially well-known for his collages and we will have many student-made collages on display.

Beautiful fused glass jewelry and other crafts will also be featured at our festival in the artist market, ARTSMART. Festival attendees can stock up on unique gifts and support young artists at the same time.
