An Artwork Mosaic

An early-grade student’s castle fit for the KNIGHTS.

Rocky Mountain Classical Academy’s (RMCA) K-8 2017 Art Show is underway. On May 4, 2017, a dozen volunteers helped Ms. Connie Parrish, Mr. Nathan Fisher, and Ms. Rachel Knighten (Elementary, Middle, and Kindergarten School Art Teachers, respectively) display hundreds of student art works. Over 3,600 square feet of wall space display 1,145 examples of student art.

Mr. Nathan Fisher, Middle School Art Teacher, explained, “We want our parents to see the wonderful art by their students.” The pieces present a mosaic of RMCA’s Classical Approach, Core Knowledge curriculum. Viewers will notice students’ evolution and improvement of their crafts in a number of genres and eras. Ms. Christianna Fogler, Headmaster, noted, “The arts are essential to a classical education. They are languages in their own right, and I hope our parents and friends come see this exhibit. It is of remarkable quality.”

For those unable to view the exhibit during school hours, on Monday, May 8, from 5:30pm – 8:00pm, RMCA will host an evening “Art Extravaganza.” The school will be open for guests to enjoy the art and light refreshments.

The display closes on May 11, 2017, and the students will take their art home.
