Student Art exhibition

March & April 2018

Presented by Rosemary Beach Foundation, the 7th Annual Music in Pictures is an educational art initiative and juried art contest open to ALL students in grade K-12 in the Walton County school system – both public and private.

 Created in collaboration with professional musicians and university faculty, Music in Pictures encourages lifelong appreciation of symphonic music, enhances learning and provides educational enrichment.  During the Fall 2017, students discovered the power of music through visual arts, classical performances, and classroom presentations.

The Music in Pictures project promotes creativity through the juried art contest where over 4,000 Walton County students (Kindergarten – 12th grade) from 17 Walton County Schools* created a painting of their interpretation of classical music.  The 7th Annual Music in Pictures celebrates the music of five diverse composers: Ludwig Van Beethoven, Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, Edvard Greig, and John Luther Adams.

Each school selected their student artwork for judging and public exhibition.  The 2018 Judges’ Panel included visual and performing artists.  The quality of the 367 submissions made their job extremely difficult.
