2010 Student Calendar Art Project Videos (MPL Virtual Art Gallery) (1st Installment)
In November, 2009, Mooresville Public Library invited third- and fourth-grade students from the Mooresville, Indiana area (enrolled in Mooresville Consolidated School Corporation elementary schools, local private schools, or home-schoolers) to create original artwork to be used in a series of 2011 calendars. The theme was local history (i.e., the towns of Mooresville, Waverly, and Camby, Indiana, and the surrounding Northeastern Morgan County area).
Students from three elementary schools (Newby, Waverly, and North Madison), as well as one home-schooler, responded, and their artwork has been compiled into five calendars and five "local history" videos that we have entitled the MPL Virtual Art Gallery.
Here is the first of the five videos, this one showcasing Newby Elementary School's third graders' wonderful artwork (from Mrs. Nora Carroll's class). We hope you enjoy it.
