The Longview Art & World Music Festival was given a new name and location this year. The Summit Art Fair showcased the world of over 100 local and regional artists including R-7 middle and high school students.

Students from the district’s three middle schools and three high schools worked in small groups to decorate vinyl banners with black masking tape. This collaborative project was called "Stuck on Art."

These displays coupled with live music and good food allowed for a very successful weekend.

Lee’s Summit R-7 Students Showcase Talents

Art students from throughout the R-7 School District showcased their talents at the Summit Art Festival, held Oct. 4, 5 and 6 in downtown Lee’s Summit. Teachers and students worked together to promote the fine arts within the community by showcasing student artwork and creating a special project at the community event.

A collaborative student project, entitled "Stuck on Art," was a highlight of the festival. Students in the school district’s three middle schools and three high schools created art pieces with vinyl banners, donated by Got Art Gallery in downtown Lee’s Summit. Art students worked in teams of approximately six to eight young people to create artistic designs directly on the vinyl using black masking tape.

In addition to the collaborative project, Summit Art Festival included a well-attended student pavilion featuring the work of Lee’s Summit R-7 art students from seventh through 12th grade.

Throughout the event, students had the opportunity to create, work together and interact with professional artists.
