News from the Art Department
The annual district-wide May Arts Festival took place on Monday, May 13, at the JMW/Jenks complex. Many Shea students had their drawings and photos on display. If you did not get a chance to attend, check out the artwork on the first floor.
Superintendent Deborah Cylke has arranged for Shea's exemplary artwork to be displayed at Tunstall (http://www.tunstall.com/), a new high tech company moving to Pawtucket. They specialize in medical monitoring devices. Tunstall will adorn their main entry with artwork designed by our students.
Three students were recognized by the art department on Honors Night. Each student received a certificate, a check for $50, and few essential art supplies.
Since her freshman year this dedicated student has taken just about every art class Shea had to offer! Her common sense approach to problem solving, her dedication, and her perseverance are what make her so successful in achieving what sometimes looks like an impossible solution to any problem. Even after the semester was over, Iussara could not leave her artwork until it was thoroughly finished to her liking. This is why this young lady stood out as being the most deserving of the Excellence Award.
Most of us are fortunate to have many adults that can support us at home. But, sometimes fate impedes the chance of having an easy family life. Regardless of how difficult her personal life became, this student never gave up striving for excellence in everything she touched. Her work has that quality that can only be achieved by those students that appreciate great craftsmanship. For her impeccable artwork filled with great personal and symbolic meaning, The Achievement in Art Award went to Dialougo Sissiko, also known as, ‘Mommy.’
This quiet, low-key student has spent at least a quarter of his high school years in art classes. Whether it be a sculpture, a painting or a drawing, this young man embedded his distinct, cultural marks on his work. While other students struggled to find meaning or to even start their artwork, he never seemed stuck for the solutions to whatever art problems were thrown at him. While some students labored creating one piece with little meaning, this young man would do double the work in record time with surprising meaningful symbols and themes. His unstoppable imagination and creativity are 21st Century qualities employers are seeking. Vangter Lor was awarded the Veronica Farrell Book Award.
