Cromwell Valley Elementary takes part in Tree Love
This banner concept was lead by a Baltimore based graphic designer, and completed by a group of 3rd grade students from Cromwell Valley under the direction of Deb Rogers to express their love of trees.
The adults provided a format and materials for the children and lead them through a conceptual conversation culminating in a work session in which abstract paintings were created. The students’ ideas and favorite things about trees were shared: “Trees are awesome!” “Trees give us air.” “Sometimes I climb a tree and rest.” This is a picture of a tree with the air all around it.
The designer created the tree and background then scanned and masked the students artwork to form the leaves.
This 3rd grade class had a great time and are excited to share their “voice” for green mindedness and improvements in Baltimore City!
Location: Area C | Mt. Royal Ave.

Congratulations to Justine B., Parkville Middle School for being selected as a Gold Key Winner in the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. Only 650 works out of over 6,000 submissions were given this distinction. Scholastics has only recently opened this national competition to 7th and 8th graders, and this is the first time a BCPS middle school has participated. One of the primary goals of the Alliance’s efforts on behalf of these younger teenagers is to spark creative talent at an early age, to put a young artist on a creative path to develop an authentic voice and creative capacity for the future.

On Sunday, March 2, 2008, Baltimore County Publics Schools joined with our partners at the Walters Art Museum to kick off the celebration of Youth Art Month. Students, parents, teachers and community gathered to celebrate "Art in Our Schools". The event was well attended as these young artists were recognized for their talents.
Art education develops self-esteem, appreciation of the work of others, self-expression, cooperation with others, and critical thinking skills, skills vital to the success of our future leaders --- our children.
In "The Nation and the Arts," a Presidential briefing paper prepared by the Independent Committee on Arts Policy, it was stated:
"Well-developed programs of making and studying art serve many functions. They help students better articulate their perceptions and shape coherent responses to their experiences. When children learn to appreciate form and color...when they learn the importance of fashioning their own images of the world around them, they achieve greater discipline and self confidence. Further, the arts have extrinsic public value as they are increasingly important to this nation's economy."
