The Arts Unite!

Thursday, January 20th was the second annual ART WALK in the Sausalito Marin City School District.

The event took place in the Bayside School Multi-Purpose room, which was transformed into a gallery space for the night.

From 5pm until 7pm students, teachers, parents, community members, administrators, and specialists gathered together as a unified community to celebrate the young artists and musicians in the district.

As people looked at the art work and listened to the music, they were asked to reflect on some important questions:

What is art?

Every student in the district was represented, as Ms. Brooke & Mr. KDub installed art work on large foam panels that became temporary walls for the evening.

Colorful work also covered tables……and people were invited to look and look again at books, self-portraits, landscapes, bumper stickers, value studies, observational drawings, and more……

Allen Biggs led the MLK middle school students in a mighty steel pan drum session. And Mr. Gomez performed with the incredible musicians of Bayside Elementary and Willow Creek Academy.

The evening ended with an awards ceremony. The visual arts specialists thought of one word that described each one of their classes, and then connected that word to an artist.

Thank you to everyone who came out!
