A small sampling of the contour line hand studies in glue. Art 1 students enjoyed playing with chalk pastels and getting creative with their backgrounds. The results are bright and dynamic. Coming to a hallway near you soon

Sketchbooks are an important tool for any artist. A place to experiment, brainstorm, think through ideas, take notes, file inspiration, journal, practice. They are in themselves a great work of art. ๐ŸŽจ Art 2 and Advanced Art students are so excited their new sketchbooks are here! We've spent the last two days individualizing them and working on entry #1. ๐Ÿ–๏ธ What a treat it will be to get to look at these every week!

Why do people make art? ~~~~~~~~~~ Solid brainstorming session today in advanced art. Looking forward to seeing how students answer this question all year long!

These independent artists are diving into their first collaborative project of the year, reimaginging the storage cabinets! These seniors will be leaving their mark in the art room for future artists to enjoy. Stay tuned to see what they come up with. ๐Ÿ–Œ๏ธ๐Ÿ”จ๐Ÿ’ญ๐Ÿง ๐Ÿ’ช

Just in time for the start of the new school year, recent grad @artistic.pinecone finished her mural on the second floor landing. It is truly beautiful and a strong colorful addition to the space! ๐ŸŒฒ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿฆ‰๐Ÿ’› well done Amanda!

Who's been making art this summer? I've been traveling all summer and painting along the way. I am soooo looking forward to getting back to the classroom and hearing what everyone has been up to! I would love to highlight some student summer art work. Tag @mhssolonart to be highlighted! โค๏ธLiz

As Barb prepares to graduate after 38 years here at MHS, there is one final art project she is asking for your support in. Please visit our gofundme page to give to the 10ft tall granite sculpture of a perched owl that is being commissioned from MHS alumni and sculptor @seanhunterwilliams to adorn the roundabout here at school. This piece of art will welcome everyone to MHS for generations to come and serve as a reminder to all that "life is short, art is long" ๐Ÿฆ‰ Follow the โžก๏ธ link in Bio to read the full story and contribute a donation. Ever little bit helps โค๏ธ #supportartists #art #sculpture #legacy #granite #gofundme #montpelier
