Roosevelt Students Put Creativity on Display

The elementary school's exhibit opens Saturday at Arts Alive.

Roosevelt Elementary School‘s "Celebrating the Creative Child" art exhibit opens Saturday at Arts Alive, 1 N. Calle Cesar Chavez, Suite 100.

The exhibit, open Saturday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., will include about 150 pieces of artwork and will be on display through May 31.

Principal Donna Ronzone says the school’s art program is supported by a generous donation from the Roosevelt Elementary Education Foundation, which supports full-time art teacher Skip Smith.

All students at Roosevelt Elementary, kindergarten through sixth grade, have a weekly 45-minute art class. The program seeks to build children’s confidence, familiarity and skill in working with a wide variety of materials in many disciplines.

Classes include instruction in drawing, painting, collage, paper mache, printmaking, ceramics, and three-dimensional construction. Students also learn about art in historical and cultural context as it relates to the work they produce in Roosevelt’s art studio.

Barbara Keyani is the Santa Barbara School District‘s communication and special projects coordinator.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
