AMORY – Amory School District art teacher Nan Moon said this year’s visual art show is all about individuality. The slogan says “…learn more about your own creative side and start blooming.”

The show is set for April 25 from 4:30 until 6 p.m. at Amory Middle School, and the public is invited to browse the sights and hear the sounds. Multimedia works of art from both middle and high school students will be featured alongside a host of other talents.

“The show highlights not only students’ visual arts skills but also includes culinary arts, music and the performing arts,” Moon said. “Even students aspiring to become teachers, themselves, are lending a hand.”

Culinary arts students will be baking cookies, teacher’s academy students will be doing sand art with kids, local musician Johnnie Frank Turman will be providing acoustic guitar music, and student Machala Durham will be performing sign language to the soundtrack of “Starry Night.”

This year’s program has been expanded to include contributions by elementary school students who have collaborated on two installations with older colleagues. Three elementary students will be portraying famous artists.

The art work will be exhibited in the library and hallways, while entertainment will be provided in the atrium to provide an evening to remember for all.
