Students are going through artwork, finishing projects, and choosing favorites for the FBCS Night of the Arts, a celebration of everyone's creativity. It will be held May 14th. Here are a few pieces that students have selected to exhibit. Mark your calendars because EVERY student will have artwork displayed. Next comes matting and labeling. The next few weeks are going to be busy!
I don't know about you but I had a hard time getting ready for school yesterday. Over spring break I went to my nephew's wedding. It took place in North Florida under a beautiful live oak tree. My son Josh and daughter-in-love Amanda were able to come from Kentucky. Jordan and Justin were also there. We all had a wonderful time. How did you spend your spring break?
Former FBCS student Litasha Davis posted this quote by Andre Gide on Instagram today. If you do not know Litasha this quote actually describes her approach to creating art. When Litasha pulls out her art supplies she has already spent time in prayer talking with the Lord about what He wants to share. Her desire is for Christ to speak through her work and it is exciting to see what God is doing in her life. You can check out Litasha's work at Behind the Face Photography.
Delaney made this diarama for me while she waited for her mom to finish working. It is made out of recycled material and love. Gifts like this touch my heart and are a great reminder of how blessed I am to work at FBCS.
The FBCS Open House was a great success. All the special teachers and after school programs had information tables set up in the Fellowship Hall. Middle schoolers signed up for electives. The lunch program had samples of food and attracted a lot of attention. Teachers displayed current classwork and shared ideas for next year with students and parents in their classrooms. A BIG thank you to our Parent volunteers and to the 8th grade class, Sidney Kniep, Sam Zyak, and Alex Chase for all your help at the art table. In case you were unable to attend the following describes the middle school art program for next year.
