One of Russia’s most dramatic and famous symphony movements was turned into colorful pieces of art by three South Callaway Elementary and Middle School students.
Those pictures, created by fourth grader Paige Clubb, fifth grader Aubrey Atkins and sixth grader Brette Masek, all qualified in the top 100 submissions in the St. Louis Symphony’s annual Picture the Music art contest, in which students listen to a selected piece performed by the symphony and create their own drawings, colorings or paintings from their impressions.
The student’s work is on display until March 22 to April 2 at the St. Louis Public Library’s Schlafly Branch, from April 2-16 at St. Peters Cultural Art Center and April 17-26 at The Magic House.
“It’s something we try to do yearly,” said South Callaway art teacher Dustin Haley. “Last year we actually had four students (make the top 100,) and we had three this year. I thought it was a pretty big honor, having three in there.”
