Each week the Apalachicola Times presents Seahawk Artistry, a feature showcasing the creative endeavors of art students in the Seahawk Arts program at Franklin County School in Eastpoint.
Elementary students celebrated the arts with their family and friends at Franklin County Elementary School's first Art and Music Classroom Exhibits and Concerts, May 4-5 and May 10-11. Music teacher Melinda Lombardino and art teacher Lydia Countryman, hosted the event to spotlight the performing and visual arts happening in their music and art classrooms.
Kindergarten students sang “There's A Little Wheel A-Turnin',” “Namaste” and “Brush Your Teeth” in the music room, and then created a collaborative weaving, using strips of colorful fabric, along a portion of the school's fence.
Fifth grade students sang “It's Our Time” and “Don't Let Your Phone Ring.” On the recorder, the entire fifth grade class played “Go Tell Aunt Rhodie.” A small group of fifth grade students took on a challenge to learn a condensed recorder version of Antonio Vivaldi's “Spring.”
In art class, fifth grade students created individual weavings, on CD discs, for a collaborative tapestry for a public art installation piece.
The visual and performing arts event was open to all parents, guardians, friends, and family members.
