September 8-14 is National Arts in Education Week! Established by Congress in 2010, National Arts in Education Week is a national celebration recognizing the transformative power of the arts in education.

Superintendent A. Russell Hughes, the Walton County School Board, and the entire Walton County School District recognize that the arts are an essential part of a complete education...preparing the Whole Child for a lifetime of success. All students benefit from artistic learning, innovative thinking, and creativity, and National Arts in Education Week is a way to recognize this impact and share the message with friends, family, and communities.

All week we will be giving you a window view into the exciting things happening in our Fine Arts Programs.

Here are some pics from the art classes of Dimitri Zachos, visual arts educators at Walton High School. The students in these pictures are working on Zentangle art...The Zentangle Method is a way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. These patterns are called tangles. The project emphases design issues such as lines and patterns as well as composition and working in the moment. Students were allowed to bring shoes as an option to create their art. Thanks to Mr. Zachos and his students for giving us a glimpse of the creation of Zentangle art.
