I can hardly believe that this school year will be over in 20 days!
This year has been full of adventure for me and my students.
I realize looking back, that there was a lot that I have not written about!
Here’s a little update on all the amazing work my students have been doing!
Two of my students won prizes in the Anti-Drug Poster Contest held by the Baltimore County States Attorney’s Office. Sophia won First place in the middle school division and is featured in the 2017-2018 Anti-Drug poster calendar, and Kathy won recognition and is featured on a poster made up of honorable mention art posters.
Two of my students won prizes in the 5th Annual Hampton Mansion Student/Teacher Art Exhibit hosted by the Historic Hampton Inc.! We have the pleasure of being the namesake middle school of the Hampton National Historic Site, as the Ridgely Family owned most of the land surrounding our area. Our mascot is the stag because the family’s crest from England had a stag in it.
My 8th grade gifted and talented art students were asked to paint our school’s steel drums to make them more aesthetically pleasing! They did an awesome job!
We had a great Arts in Action night this year!! There were lots of changes to how we used to do things, but it turned out fantastic! We had a juried art exhibit in the art hallway, a community Flower of Life mural, paper weaving positive intentions, and decorative tile making.
So many amazing things happen here in our ART world!!
