Celebrating Art - We Have a Top Ten Winner!

Congratulations Shreeja!

Once again, we participated in a fairly new contest called Celebrating Art.  Artwork was submitted digitally and artwork selected as finalists will be published in a full color, hardcover book.  We submitted 80 pieces of artwork and had 49 pieces selected as finalist - YAHOO!!!  This is the 3rd time we participated in this contest.  Any school that has 15 entries accepted to be published, receives a free Celebrating Art Book for the classroom.  This book is one of the most popular in my ART bookshelf ~ students from all grades love to look through it because they find artwork that students at Mount Prospect School have created, they find artwork that their sisters & brothers have created and artwork that their friends have created~very cool!

Shreeja, 3rd Grade students at Mount Prospect School just received news that she is a Top Ten Winner in the Celebrating Art Contest, in the K - 3 grade category.  Shreeja will have her work specially featured in the book and receive an additional prize!!!
Congratulations to all 49 Mount Prospect students that will have their artwork included in the Celebrating Art book and 3 cheers for Shreeja for making the TOP TEN!  Keep up the GREAT work!  There will be another contest this Spring so decide which piece you will enter!  Permission forms will be going out in April!

Below are 2 photos of my students with the Celebrating Art books, they are truly beautiful!
Celebrating Art will have another contest this year - entries from K, 1st and 2nd grade are due to Mrs. Bivona or Mrs. Roman by March 21, 2012.  Entry forms went out on Monday.  If you need one contact Mrs. Bivona at

NJPAC Mid-Winter Exhibit - 2012

NJPAC - Winter Exhibit 2012

One of my goals, each year, is to display as much artwork as possible outside of our school. Throughout the February & March, 4 pieces of artwork will be on display in the lobby of the Victoria Theater at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, Newark, NJ. This exhibit is sponsored by the Art Educators of New Jersey, 30 pieces will be exhibited in all.  All the artwork is framed under glass and lit in true gallery style. It is quite an honor to have work exhibited in this exhibit, art educators from around the state of New Jersey submit work.

The Artist's Reception is Sunday, February 12, 2012 from 11:00 - 12:00.

If you are going to NJPAC please make sure to stop by and enjoy the exhibit! All the artwork from this exhibit can been viewed in the AENJ Artsonia Gallery.
