Students in grades K-12 are invited to take part in the 2018 Doodle 4 Google contest, and create an uplifting doodle that tells the world “What inspires me.” From crayons to clay, graphic design, or even food, young artists can utilize any materials to bring their creation to life. Like all Google Doodles, each doodle must incorporate the letters G-o-o-g-l-e. One national winner will receive a $30,000 college scholarship, a $50,000 technology package for their school/non-profit organization, and a behind-the-scenes experience with the Doodle team to transform their Doodle into an interactive experience on Google.com. The contest is open for entries from January 8th – March 2nd, 2018 – only 8 short weeks!
Does art inspire you? Clouds that look like faces? Sugar? Discovering new galaxies? Artists have looked to the world around them for centuries to gain inspiration. This year’s 10th anniversary of Doodle 4 Google asks students to do the same. The winner’s artwork will be made into an interactive doodle on Google.com as well as loads of scholarships and prizes.

Martello Cesar (Class of 2019) is smart, thoughtful, creative, and hard-working. He asks questions, requests and accepts feedback well, and he always applies that feedback to improve his work. His observational drawings have become more and more successful because of his drive and diligence. He spends a great amount of time on his own personal projects outside of class, which will no doubt help him develop a personal voice and vision.
Martello is both curious and industrious, two qualities essential for success in the visual arts. He has certainly grown as an artist over the past couple of years, and he’s already produced a number of strong pieces in both graphic design and observational drawing and painting. More, and even better, will certainly come.
To improve his work, Martello checks in with his art instructor in many early mornings and at other times during the day about his progress. The fact that he initiates research on his own to investigate artistic ideas and approaches on his own time is impressive and will serve him well. Martello is clearly dedicated to improving his skills, growing in understanding in the visual arts, becoming more and more creative, and building a body of work that is meaningful to him. He will undoubtedly see major growth and more successes as he continues his studies and practice.
Martello is thoughtful in his approach and calm and mature in his demeanor, and he serves as a solid model for the Design students, who are lucky to share the studio space this year with Martello and the other Portfolio students. In addition, his efforts in the Tenacity Challenge competition last year helped to bring attention to issues concerning young people of color in our region and the nation.

This month we are honored to display the photographs of artist Chris Coe class of 2013. Check out Chris's bio and website or email to visit the gallery.
Chris Coe is an American photographer born outside of Boston. He launched his photography career running from one restaurant opening to the next, creating a diverse array of images for culinary publications. As he captured chefs, wine tastings, and interior images, Chris began to forge his own way of seeing. After attending the Rochester Institute of Technology's Advertising Photography program, Chris's work has evolved into a portfolio of thoughtful and precisely executed portraits. Earlier this year he won an Addy for his work on a campaign about Death Wish Coffee coffee - watch the behind the scenes here. Chris will be relocating to New York City in January 2018.

While the “meaning of life” may represent many different things to many people, in sticking with the It Gets Better Project’s goal to deliver positive messaging to LGBTQ+ youth, submissions should aim to inspire and spread a message of hope and positivity, a message that resonated with the singer.
This year I am fortunate to be piloting a wonderful new resource Scholastic Art Magazine.
It offers a wealth of knowledge and a great year of wonderful art and articles for my students.
We are currently reading an article from the September issue (yeah, I'm a little behind) titled " Sculpture Showdown" discussing the controversy of the sculpture " Fearless Girl" in front of Artist Arturo Di Modica's "Charging Bull". The article gives students an overview of the topic and then prompts the students to craft an argument.
The magazine offers well rounded, thoughtful articles, artwork and includes a hands on lesson as well.
I am thrilled to use this resource this year to enhance my curriculum. I'd love for you to check it out and share your thoughts as well.
