11/30/12 This fall, 5th and 6th grade students at Riverside Intermediate School participated in a greeting card design contest sponsored by the Delta Theta Tau Sorority. In art class students learned how artists use journals to document their lives and brainstorm ideas. Then after studying the elements and principles of design and experimenting with a variety of materials, students created a mixed media design for an all occasion greeting card. Some students illustrated beautiful scenery while others mixed crayon, colored pencil, and watercolor to make abstract patterns. Over 500 entries were submitted and Delta Theta Tau picked twelve Riverside winners. Congratulations to all twelve students for their hard work and brilliant ideas. The greeting cards will soon be for sale at Riverside, as well as a number of local businesses.
