I would like to take this opportunity to tell you how excited I am about the 2011-2012 school year!
2010-2011 brought some very positive changes to the Visual Art and Photography Department. The exciting announcement of 62+ art show winners on the local, state, regional, and national levels. Also, the Photography Department was granted funds to purchase brand new Nikon digital cameras for the Photography II class. All of this is part of what makes this program successful. This has also happened because of the tremendous support of our parents!
This year has started out great and we are hitting the road running with our 6th and 7th graders beginning their designs for the Montgomery Humane Society “Howli-day” card, 8th graders working on still-life drawings for the Alabama National Fair Exhibit, High school Photography I class experiencing what it is like to be in a “Camera Obscura” and building their own pinhole cameras, and High School Photography II taking and editing photographs to enter into the Photography Exhibition for the Alabama National Fair.
I know this will be a wonderful and productive year for all of the Saint James Visual Art/Photography students and thank you for your gracious and continued support.
