Show Notes

We're welcoming artist and Elyria Schools Teacher, Mel Rainey, in studio. Mel spends most of his days in the art classrooms of Elyria High School but today he joins us on Petey Podcast to send out a message to all young artists of Elyria Schools: Get creative, and enter your artwork in the Elyria Apple Art Contest! The Apple Art Contest takes place during the Elyria Apple Festival but entries are due by September 10. Elyria Schools students--grades one through 12--are eligible to participate. First, second and third place winners are possible in the categories of Best Use of Color, Best Message and Most Creative. Art entries will be grouped by grade levels, 1-4, 5-8 and 9-12. Elyria students interested in participating should turn their completed artwork into their art teacher or school principal by Friday, September 10. Artwork should have an apple theme, be two dimensional on a 9X12 base of paper, poster board, cardboard, etc., and it should include the student's name, school name and grade level neatly written on the back side. Students: Let your creativity loose (and don't forget the apple theme!)
