The Workshops The Workshops The Workshops The Workshops The Workshops The Workshops The Workshops The Workshops 42nd Year of Fine Arts Festival! The Fine Arts Festival has been kept alive and strong for forty two years. We are very proud of this great Orme tradi- tion.
It is arguably one of the best weeks of the year, one etching positive memories that Orme students carry forward in their lives. The Festival is a week of total immersion in the Arts. From February 1st through the 6th, each student will take a workshop with a professional artist for five hours a day, and every evening they attend an art performance.
The week culminates on Saturday the 6th with Grandparents Day and Alumni Open House when we are joined by family and friends who come to see exhibitions of the students 9 work and performances by creative writing, drumming, mu- sic ensemble, dance, and video production workshops. Before Winter Break students sign up for three choices of workshops. They are assigned to one using a point system based on their grade level, number of years at Orme, and participation on the student Fine Art Festival Committee.
The Fine Arts Festival Tradition The Fine Arts Festival ... more. less.
was founded in 1969 by Dot Lewis, art teacher and Chair of the Fine Arts Department. She felt that, because of Orme 9s isolation, it was important to bring the art world to the School. She established the Festival to bring in top-notch artists to share their skills and passion with students.<br><br> She also established the Festival Gallery, housed in our Phillips Library during the week. Through the Gallery exhibits, students are exposed to a variety of trends in contemporary art. Proceeds from Gallery sales are used to purchase art for Orme 9s Permanent Collection.<br><br> Jenks Family Endowment In 1995, Josephine J. Rogers, grandmother of Distinguished Alumna Helen Hudson Weaver 970, willed $100,000 to Orme to partially endow the Fine Arts Festival, one of Orme 9s most important and unique programs. In addition to Ms.<br><br> Rogers 9 generous gift, annual sponsors make the con- tinuation of Orme 9s Fine Arts Festival possible. We grate- fully acknowledge our 2010 Fine Arts Festival sponsors: Elizabeth B. Smith '71, Beatrice Foster, Kate '72 & Jim '73 Carroll, and Bruce Foster '77.<br><br> February 1 February 1 - - 6, 2010 6, 2010 " "" " " "" " The Orme School of Arizona The Orme School of Arizona " "" " " "" " Orme, AZ 86333 Orme, AZ 86333 " " " " " " " " www.ormeschool.org www.ormeschool.org " " " " " " " " (928) 632 (928) 632 - - 7601 7601 1 CREATIVE WRITING 1 CREATIVE WRITING 1 CREATIVE WRITING 1 CREATIVE WRITING James Ciletti (40th Year) This workshop focuses on writing lyrical and narrative po- etry.
