"Art Makes You Smart" and More
This week in Chapel, we were treated to some inspiring art work as Art Department Chair Rosie Prevost displayed the award-winning work produced by students across the art department. From printmakers to painters, photographers to fashion designers, and sculptors to ceramic artists, 18 art students brought home 44 regional Scholastic Art awards. Their work is truly beautiful. Later in the week, Dance teacher Marianne Hraibi presented the work of Moses Pendleton, a Northeast Kingdom product, and his production MOMIX, a stunning expression of physical art, which as Moses says, "blends the artistic and the athletic". Academy Theatre also performed their student-directed one-act plays this week, and the Acting classes were getting ready to produce their mid-winter shows.
