6-8th grade artists at Durham Middle School
The Art Station at Big Shanty Park in Kennesaw will soon host our first ever “Off the Leash” Pet Themed Art Show. This is an open all mediums show where the proceeds will benefit Mostly Mutts, a local animal rescue shelter. Visit their website at https://mostlymutts.org/ to learn more about this organization. Pieces September 26-29. We will have a reception October 5 at 6-8pm with music, dogs, snacks, and an animal themed craft for children.
Last night, we had a successful and beautiful art teacher show. I wanted to share some of my pictures with you!

During week one of art, students will be bringing home a syllabus with the required materials needed for class. Please sign and return the bottom portion with your contact information. I will also be sending home a flyer for sketchbooks. If you were in my class last year, you know that we use sketchbooks everyday as part of our curriculum, I am sending home an option on buying one to support our program. Please look over everything and send any questions to me through email. I am looking forward to another amazing year at Durham!!! Go wildcats!
This Friday May 12th students will be bringing home their portfolio of work as well as their sketchbook. Please take the time to share and go over their artwork with them. All students worked extremely hard this quarter to make some really wonderful pieces.
The only artwork that should be missing from their portfolio is the ADVERSITY piece as it is in the art show next week, at Lost Mt. Middle School.
If students are not here on Friday then they may pick it up during Olympic week next week.
If you are a 7th or 6th grade student please hold onto your portfolio and sketchbook for art class next year!

I am so pleased to announce that 6 of our Durham Middle School artists have made it to the finals in the COMMUNITY YOUTH ART MONTH COMPETITION for the State of Georgia. All of these students worked extremely hard to create a 2D or 3D art piece that represents what community means to them. All of these ladies worked with a partner to make these beautiful and motivating pieces. Congratulations and good luck to the following; Meghan Gray and Elizabeth Bell, Dascha Cherepakhin and Jaylyn Baldwin, Victoria Moreno and Maddie Shuff!
