Edmonson Voice Staff:
Third and fourth grade students at South Edmonson took part in a recent art project that began as a Mammoth Cave Art Contest implemented by Mrs. Jessica Doyle, art and music teacher, named "Mammoth Cave: The World Above and Below."
Students researched images of Mammoth Cave National Park for inspiration and submitted a sketch of his/her idea for the project. The five winners of the art contest were: Zoey Richmond, Evelyn Ulm, Chloe Whittle, Ellie Claire Spainhoward, and Conner Priddy. These students were given a large 2'x 2' canvas, which they would use to complete their final project using the materials of their choice.
"The final artwork submitted was outstanding," said Mrs. Doyle. "This is a very exciting opportunity for our students and I'm so proud of the art that they've created."
The students will represent South Edmonson Elementary School with this artwork as it becomes part of an art display for public viewing at Mammoth Cave National Park from November 18-January 20th. Additionally, this artwork will be become part of the Dream Rocket Project, where thousands of artworks from various regions of the world are being collected. Eventually, all submissions will be connected side by side to wrap the skeleton of a 385’ Space Launch System (SLS) replica and will be placed on temporary exhibit at locations around the United States.
