2016 Senior/Junior Prom at Rivercrest!

On May 13th students and staff had a fun filled night at Prom this year. The Rivercrest was beautifully decorated with candles for the theme "All That Glitters". The DJ kept the party moving and helped make the mood. The food was served buffet style and including many wonderful and tasty choices. And to top it off we had Mr. Quigley's special cookies,a yummy cake, and ice cream Sundays with an assortment of toppings.

CAMP COLLEGE IS COMING SOON TO AVONDALE ACADEMY!

Students will have a chance to learn about college, financial aid, and careers. This week long program is free and even includes transportation, breakfast, lunch, and a couple of field trips. Permission slips were sent home to students. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Mr. Matheson and his advanced art classes at Avondale Academy took part in a unique project one day titled “The Pollock Experience”. This project was conducted in a controlled space to keep the paint from literally getting everywhere. In the early part of the 20th century, Jackson Pollock was an influential American painter who played a major role in the abstract expressionist movement. He was well known for his unique technique of dripping and splattering paint across the canvas that was placed on the ground. So after learning about this painter my students and I grouped together around a piece of plywood and practiced this technique with old donated house paint. The students enjoyed getting a bit messy as they dripped and flung the paint around and in the end we created a beautiful piece of art to share with the school.

STUDENTS HEADING TO THE DETROIT INSTITUTE OF ARTS ON FRIDAY!

Over the past few years Mr. Matheson and his students would study a piece of art in the classroom on a daily basis and have group conversations about them. This is known as VTS (visual thinking strategies). On June 3rd Mr. Matheson and Mrs. Mow will be taking the senior class of Avondale Academy to the Detroit Institute of Arts. For most of the students this will be the first time in the museum. The objective of this field trip is to explore the museum and practice or VTS skills. The students will go on a scavenger hunt of sorts to find artwork around the museum. The students will finally get a chance to see the magnificent art in person and develop more of an appreciation towards the fine arts and the history behind it.
