About the Artist: Melody Jones

My name is Melody Jones and I am a Visual Arts teacher at Lincoln Southeast High School. I have always enjoyed expressing myself by creating works of art. I try to encourage my students to enter their artwork in different shows and competitions throughout the year. This past year I have been able to spend more time creating my own artwork. So when I received information about this project I decided I should enter a design idea of my own.

Artwork Interpretation: "Rhythm of the Raindrops"

This design idea came from an overlapping shapes assignment that I have my painting students create. This project is done as part of a watercolor unit. I like the way this project turns out and it is what inspired me to create my rain barrel design.
