My International Baccalaureate Visual Art Students

 Ian's Global Theme centered around Fear. Ian will be pursuing either film or animation in college. He is an incredible illustrator. We are so proud of him, he has been accepted at "Rhode Island School of Design", "New York University" and "Rochester Institute of Technology."
 Marvin's Global Theme centered around Death. She will be pursuing Biology in College. Marvin had no art back ground when she started the program 2 years ago. I'm so proud of her! You did a great job 001!

 Nicole's Global Theme centered around Political Issues. She will be pursuing Political Science in College.
Nicole was my musical theater student. We shared a love of chocolate and the TV show Glee.

Vanessa's Global Theme centered around Weather. She's going to college but for the life of me I can't remember what she will be studying. Vanessa always had us laughing. My favorite art piece is the large sculpture in the photograph. The title is "It's raining Cats and Dogs" She actual painted animal crackers for this piece. I had to keep the freshman from picking them off and trying to eat them.

I've become very fond of these four incredible young adults. They have hearts of gold and were always there for each other and for me.  I wish them all the very best in the next stage of their life journey.  Their parents should be so proud of them, I know I am!!
 I hope we always remain friends and keep in touch.
Mrs. Maggio
