Malden Arts Switch Boxes, Public Art in MA

History painting for Fellsmere Pond:  Black line in a cross hatch technique was used to tell the story of Elisha Converse. Converse hired Frederick Olmsted to design a pond to protect the Boston Rubber Shoe Factory from another fire.  I must buy a pair of Chuk Taylor's!  Elisha Converse's fourth cousin started the Converse shoe factory.

Two Seniors Moving On to Art Schools

Ann Kurian will be at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design to study Graphic Design.  Above is an original logo design which she created Senior year.  She used Photo Shop to add her concept onto a truck.

Stephanie Patricio will be attending The Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University to earn a joint degree in Art Education and Photography.  Her works were displayed above for a 20 min. video for her International Baccalaureate Visual Art oral presentation.  She explained her cultural inspirations and art history research using design vocabulary.

3rd. Year of Teaching High School Art

I was happy to make this poster / flyer to promote the Scholastic Art Awards at our school.  It means so much to the students.  They received 2 Gold Keys, 3 Silver Keys, and 2 Honorable Mentions.  Last year we were awarded only 1 Silver Key and 4 Honorable Mentions.
