Miscoe Hill 5&6 Artists Showcase/Semester One

It’s not our art, but our heart that’s on display. – Gary Holland, Contemporary Artist

As most of my readers know, I’m retiring from the Mendon Upton Regional School District in the middle of this month (I’ll write more about that in a separate post). I won’t be fully retiring as I’ve accepted a part time position with Massachusetts College of Art and Design. We just finished up our first semester at Miscoe Hill Middle School. Normally we would have a big school art show at the end of the year. I’m not sure that will happen due to the pandemic, and I won’t be around then to ensure student participation, so my students have each created their own Artist Showcase in Adobe Spark Page and pasted the link on our collaborative Artists Showcase Padlet here: https://padlet.com/MonaLisaLivesHe/nv8trxe81cvve4ku.

We invite you to take a look by simply clicking on the links above. 

Once you’ve clicked through the individual postings, return to mine (Alice Gentili) and as you scroll through the page, click on the buttons beneath each entry to see the matching blog post, overall lesson plan, and all resources. You can view the Padlet by clicking below but the thread width is limited – you’re better off clicking the links above. All of the projects are posted lower in this thread. By clicking on each project you can see the corresponding blog post.
