Bethel School District will hold the Sixteenth Annual All-District Art Festival at Spanaway Lake High School on Saturday, February 21, in conjunction with the annual Technology Fair.
Celebrate Learning: POSSIBILITIES 2015 will run from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, and focus on technology and art from around the district.
There will be five categories for adjudication of art including K-1, 2-3, 4-5, 6-8, and 9-12. Pre-K artwork will be displayed, but will not be judged. Judges include Anne Banks, Program Supervisor for the Arts at the Office of Superintendent of Public Education; Connie Diffenderfer, local artist and former manager of Gallery 3 in Puyallup; Becky Frehse, local artist and adjunct visual arts professor at PLU and UPS; Michael Hollins, Superintendent for the Washington State Fair Junior/Senior Art Show; Karen Lucas, owner of Lucas Gallery on the Hill in Graham; and Mike Sweney, Program Manager for Art in Public Places at the Washington State Arts Commission.
Prizes and ribbons will be awarded to two-dimensional and three-dimensional pieces for first, second, third, and honorable mention in each category. Top winners will be placed on display at the ESC. Several outstanding pieces may be selected as the Superintendent’s Choice, and will be purchased to become part of the district’s permanent collection.
Professional artists will also be demonstrating their craft during the Art Festival including jewelry design with glass-blown beads, painting with oils, watercolors, and silks, and wood burning. Do not miss POSSIBILITIES 2015!
