Thirteen Rhoades 7th Graders from Mrs. Schramm’s Literature/Language Arts classes were selected as finalists for the NEA BIG READ: Read-Imagine-Create 2017-2018. Produced by Write Out Loud San Diego, in association with National Endowment for the Arts, Arts Midwest, and San Diego Public Library, entrants had to READ selections from the book Pretty Monsters by Kelly Link, REIMAGINE the images and themes, and CREATE a project in a medium important to them.
The three READ-IMAGINE-CREATE categories are:
1. Literary Art: Stories, poetry, monologues, dialogues, biography, plays, etc.
2. Visual Art: Illustrations, graphic novels, fashion/costume designs, set designs, sculpture, mixed media, photography, skateboard design etc.
3. Performance/Media Art: Recitation, dance, film, music composition, opera, animation, etc.
We are excited to share that the following Rhoades students were selected as finalists in their respective categories.
Finalists will be recognized at the Read-Imagine-Create: Annual Presenta-tion of Student Creations on April 9, 2018. Students who placed for lit-erary pieces will have all or portions of their work read aloud by profes-sional, adult actors/poets. Students recognized for visual art will have the opportunity to see their work displayed publicly.
The Annual Presentation will be held at the Old Town Theater (4040 Twiggs Street) on Monday, April 9th at 7:00 pm. The event is free but RSVPs are required to Veronica Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations Rhoades students!
