Music in Pictures is an educational art initiative & art contest sponsored by Rosemary Beach Foundation in collaboration with professional musicians and music faculty at the Florida State University. The year-long program is open to all Walton County students, K-12th grades. Live instrumental performances by a variety of musicians were provided at each of the schools in the district, along with a meaningful professional development opportunity presented by Dr. Benjamin Sung, Florida State University, for the district art instructors. This year’s 9th Annual Music in Pictures celebrates the music of three American composers, and specifically designated pieces from each of their repertoires. Students from 18 Walton County Schools and Home Schools created paintings inspired by Butterfly's Day Out by Mark O'Connor; John Adams's Short Ride in a Fast Machine; and Banjo and Fiddle by William Kroll.

Since the COVID-19 stay-at-home order circumvented the final awards ceremony, Rosemary Beach Foundation has created a virtual awards ceremony for each school, in addition to multiple separate videos highlighting the artistic renderings of our Walton County Students. 

Walton County School District wishes to congratulate all the winners in the Rosemary Beach Foundation’s Music in Pictures art competition, and express our deepest thanks to the Rosemary Beach Foundation and partners, the performing musicians, and Dr. Benjamin Sung for this outstanding program that has had such a strong positive impact for our students, teachers, and community.
