The State of the Arts

Digital Quarterly Publication of the Fine Arts of PCSD

A Spring We Will Never Forget

It has been a whirlwind for us all since our last publication in February. I don't think any of us could have predicted, in our wildest dreams, what this semester would have looked like. Our hearts are with those who have experienced the full force of this sickness within their own families, our seniors who have lost much of their favorite parts of the school year, our teachers who are working overtime to provide quality experiences for their students, and for the community heroes who stand on the front lines each day in the hospitals caring for our very own friends and family.


Paulding county has been blessed with the best people!! From teachers driving through neighborhoods to honk, wave, and obnoxiously remind their students how much they care to drive-by birthday celebrations, community food drives, online church services, community leaders and law enforcement recording story time for Paulding's children, and cyber Just Dance battles with your neighbors, the heart of Paulding is still beating.


The Arts are ALIVE and WELL in Paulding and even (and maybe especially) in these strange times, the arts are doing what they were intended to do - heal, encourage, soothe, inspire, restore. Enjoy the videos and the images in the columns this quarter as you will see whole families creating and sharing the beauty of the arts.


We miss you and we are so proud of you.


Engage. Inspire. Prepare.

Big picture

To the Class of 2020

We are so proud of you. You are stepping out into a completely different world than even last year's seniors did.


This world needs you.


This world will be transformed BY you.


Always follow your dreams and remember where you came from. We are here rooting you on. The Class of 2020 will teach us all a lesson or two in strength and resilience.


Remember to use your gifts and talents wisely, make decisions prayerfully, and own the fact that just because you don't know something doesn't mean you can't find out.


#pauldingfinearts - Tag us in your endeavors and let us keep up with you!
