Hello everyone, I am in the process of transferring my Art Web Site to a different server. R.S.U. #57 will not be hosting the site anymore. The will shut it down on August 15, 2011. Please access my site through my blog .
I just retired after 35 years of teaching Art and I still want my former students and anyone else the opportunity to look at the site.
I plan to archive all my pages from the year 2000. They range from SPORTS, MUSIC , DRAMA SCHOOL LIFE and of course ART.
I’ll keep you posted as I upload them to my new host.
To my Sophomore and Juniors Pottery students: I truly enjoyed my time with you. You created some great pottery and I wanted to feature your body of work in your own personal web page. Enjoy and I’ll miss you. You can always get in contact with me through this blog. Have a great summer.
I created a page for each of my pottery seniors. They were introduced to the pottery wheel and one of their assignment was to create a tea set with a theme “Some of the Greatest Fairy Tales Ever Told!” using any building technique they learned in Pottery 1

I would like to thank the Gallery on the Green for giving Massabesic Students this opportunity to exhibit their work in a professional setting. The evening was wonderful. My students were so happy to show friends and family their work; they also had a chance to meet the 3 Artists from the Gallery: Roger Deering Jr. , Susan Mesick, Ann Marie Therrien. They each received art supplies and a certificate. The Expo 2011 is on display until Saturday April 23, 2011. The Gallery is closed on Easter Sunday . Mr. Minelly’s son Peter, the owner of the Gallery, came up with the idea of the Expo 2011 for one of his High School business course. Great idea.
If you are in Alfred Maine, stop in and check out the Gallery. Go to their website to see their hours and the featured Artists.

The final trimester is underway. My pottery 2 students just had their 1st experience with the wheel. They realized that it can be lots of fun and very rewarding to see their 1stsuccessful pot. They also realized that it takes much practice. You can view a Photo Stack and a Short Video of this process. If you want to see a Better Quality Video click here. This is a large file , be patient. Click on the links and enjoy!
This is the work of my 2nd Trimester Pottery 1 students.
They are basically grouped by students.
Students learned the 3 basic hand building techniques: coil, pinch and slab.
They also experimented with different ways of decorating their work. Enjoy the Art Show!
