N-B Photos: County schools celebrate the arts Thursday

Norwell Middle School Thursday held an Art and Film Festival, which students organized after art teacher Hallie Koenig’s art appreciation students obtained funding for the event from a grant from the Indiana Arts Commission. Students spent the day rotating between demonstrations, including an ice sculptor and a street artist who creates murals with spray paint, and premiered movies they made in Koenig’s class. They also participated in physical activities.

Bluffton-Harrison Elementary students performed Thursday during the school’s 2014 Spring Sing. Students in each grade met in the gym to sing songs from around the world during the afternoon convocation. Later in the evening, they also held their annual art show. Principal Julie Meitzler said each one of the school’s 626 students had a piece of art in the show.
