The Rock Island County Regional Office of Education (RIROE) promotes the importance of Fine Arts by offering its oakwood gallery and glass showcase for displaying students’ artwork. This opportunity is offered to recognize students’ artwork, acknowledge the important work of Visual Art teachers, inspire students and families towards an increased appreciation of artistic endeavors. It also gives the Rock Island County Regional Office of Education visitors an opportunity to view the fine art work of students. Each show features the artwork of students and is displayed for a month. In addition, each show is highlighted by an evening open house reception and gallery walk for the student artists their families and guests. Superintendent Tammy Muerhoff (or her representative) recognizes the artists and presents certificates of achievement.
Due to COVID the ROE was not able to promote this event in the past. However, our Moline Art Teachers wanted to carry on this tradition and recognize their students moving forward. Thinking outside of the box: Moline Elementary Art teachers, Jim Sheese, Kayla Reed, Rebecca Morrisey-Tock, Joan Soppe and Sarah Dembosky came up with another way to allow the Regional Office of Education to recognize these students and we are pleased to continue doing it with a slide show of the work these students work, created by their teachers.
