Arts in Education Week
Randolph School is proud to celebrate National Arts in Education Week, September 14 - 18, with special performances and events that are open to the community. At Randolph, we believe a strong arts program is an essential part of a complete education. Our program engages students in grades K-12 in both producing and experiencing the arts. During National Arts in Education Week, we share this important message with friends, family, and communities. Proceeds from all events benefit the visual and performing arts programs at Randolph School, a 501 (c)(3) organization.
Committed performed on Tuesday, September 15th at 7:00pm on the Garth Commons Lawn. Buy tickets now and watch the concert through October 4th!
Committed, a quintet a cappella group, is known throughout the United States and overseas. Committed began in 2003 at Forest Lake Academy and solidified their sound while at school at Oakwood University. The group will perform in honor of their 10th anniversary of winning the national competition, NBC's "The Sing Off." We are thrilled to welcome them back home to Huntsville for their performance at Randolph School!
An Evening with Dean Mitchell
Dean Mitchell will answer your questions live via Zoom on Wednesday, September 16th at 7:00pm. Like his artwork, which you can view here, Mitchell's story of becoming a professional artist is captivating and real. A gallery of his work will be displayed on both campuses to inspire questions from our students.
In addition to watercolors, Mitchell is accomplished in other mediums, including egg temperas, oils and pastels. Mitchell has been featured in numerous publications, including the New York Times, Christian Science Monitor, American Artist, Fine Art International and Art News.
