Celebration of the Arts and Chalk Walk at North High School
North High School encourages all students to express themselves creatively and convincingly through dynamic Visual and Performing Arts classes. Students learn to express themselves and sharpen their skills in the areas of drama, dance, drawing, painting, ceramics, band and choir. At the annual Celebration of the Arts event, students in Visual and Performing Arts classes share their talents with the entire school and our community. The Celebration of the Arts serves as a Common Assessment of student learning, allowing students to demonstrate their understanding of Art Elements and Principles of Design. Every student shows his or her best work and explains why the selected item is exemplary. The Saxon Band, Jazz Band, Choir and Dance all perform pieces that serve as a culmination of the year’s efforts. In May of 2015, students incorporated technology using the “Aurasma App” on their Smart Phones. This App allowed our families and other visitors to listen to pre-recorded interviews with the artists who explained what they had learned from their experiences in our classes. North High’s entire Visual and Performing Arts Staff collaborates for the Chalk Walk and the Show and were supported by many of the school’s teachers. We encourage the entire community to mark their calendars for the evening of Friday, June 3rd, 2016, and join us for the 2016 Saxon Celebration of the Arts, starting at 6:00 pm.
