NACOGDOCHES - The Thomas J. Rusk Academy of Fine Arts will host a double feature Jan. 29 - the Fall Enrichment Art Show showcasing talent by the young artists of TJR and the seventh annual TJR Adult Spelling Bee. The art show will take place at 5 p.m. followed by the spelling bee at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium.
The artwork on display represents efforts of the third, fourth and fifth grade students participating in the magnet school’s enrichment program for the 2012 fall semester. The first-year program at TJR provides students an extra 45-minute class weekly in their favorite Fine Arts subject — music, dance, theater or art.
Community members are invited to view the artworks and support the students of Nacogdoches ISD as they further their arts education. Art work will be on display from Jan. 28 to Feb. 9 during normal school hours for the remainder of the showing.
The Adult Spelling Bee event will begin with refreshments in the Hospitality Hive at 6 p.m. Representatives from area businesses, clubs and NISD teachers will be among those seeking the top prize.
