  • The Art of Hope

    During this time of uncertainty, it is important that students develop a sense of hope. Expressions of hope through the arts is a great way to allow students to process their feelings and emotions about our current state of events and positively reframe their feelings to that of hope. To provide a platform for this to occur, we are encouraging students to express their feelings through the creation and submission of art to showcase in a digital exhibition

    Guidelines:

    Students are encouraged to create works of art to express their feelings of hope during this time of social distancing and unrest. Students may produce art in the following forms:

    · Visual Art: original or replications of paintings, drawings, sculptures, etc.

    · Music: an original, remake or an arrangement of a vocal or instrumental piece (2 minute maximum)

    · Theatre: a monologue, poem recitations, or a skit, etc.

    · Dance: a choreographed performance (2 min. max)

    Credit to the author, artist, or originator of work must be cited if not original.

     

    Criteria

    · Artistically, visually, aesthetically and appealing

    · Connected to the theme: The Art of Hope

    · Appropriate for public viewing/listening

    · No offensive lyrics, props or attire

     

    Submission Process:

    Students will submit their work via Google Forms using the link provided by their teacher.

    Google Form Link: https://bit.ly/FAChallenge2020

    Submission will be reviewed prior to being posted for public viewing.

     

    The art will be reviewed and displayed on a public Google website for viewing. Submissions will be uploaded upon review.
