NISD artists showed that they could paint to music when they participated in the 45th annual Paint to Music contest sponsored by the San Antonio Symphony and Symphony League. NISD had 77 winners from 18 elementary schools, including three top prize winners.
They were Lorena Owen, a 4th grader from Colonies North ES; Melani Moreno, a 5th grader from Colonies North ES; and Zoey Maschek, a 4th grader from Kallison ES. Art teachers are Lisa Duck-Fuentes, Colonies North ES; and Valerie Martinez, Kallison ES.
Elementary students were invited to create art based on excerpts of symphonic music. The winning students were recognized during a symphony performance of the same musical selection.
