A group of ninth grade art students submitted a group project to the Berkshire Museum's exhibit celebrating Youth Art Month. The 3rd Annual Spotlight on the Arts Show will have an opening reception on Friday, March 1st, from 5-7 PM. It showcases artwork from students all over Berkshire County and will be open for the month of March. The following students were involved in the project: Catie Nagy, Mariah Broderick, Elaina Donsborough, Tori Gilmore, Lexi Tomascak, Maddie Fife, and Emma Stewart. Their project is called "MindCraft" and is an interactive art installation allowing viewers to create imagery with a variety of movable shapes.
The artworks of six Mount Everett students were selected for the 33rd Annual Norman Rockwell Museum Berkshire County Student Show this year! The exhibit will be open through March 2nd and is free for viewing. See the work of Audrey Bartzsch, Sofia Giumarro, Mercedes Holst-Grubbe, Salirae Marshall, Bekka McCloud, and Shelby Tinker.
The Mosaics class designed and created a mural as part of an ongoing series called growth. Students planned five murals with this theme, each representing one type of growth: Spiritual, Artistic, Intellectual, and this fall, they completed Physical Growth. They represented physical growth with elements such as the golden spiral, life cycles of animals, and hand and footprints from babies, toddlers, and kids in school. The mural is deliberately place in the water fountain alcove near the biology classroom. The 5th and final mural of the series will be completed this spring!
