"The arts have always served as the distinctive vehicle for discovering who we are. Providing ways of thinking as disciplined as science or math and as disparate as philosophy or literature, the arts are used by and have shaped every culture and individual on earth. They continue to infuse our lives on nearly all levels—generating a significant part of the creative and intellectual capital that drives our economy. The arts inform our lives with meaning every time we experience the joy of a well-remembered song, experience the flash of inspiration that comes with immersing ourselves in an artist’s sculpture, enjoying a sublime dance, learning from an exciting animation, or being moved by a captivating play." -NCCAS, 2014Welcome to the 2022-2023 Otwell Art Program!Explore, Experiment, Enjoy!Hello everyone! Mrs. Mayabb here! I am so excited to be sharing another year with you here at Otwell Middle School! As always, I have big plans and big projects planned for those of you who will be attending art during one of your four quarters of the school year. We will be exploring a plethora of topics including art history, art criticism, the aesthetics of art, as well as how art assist us in understanding our contemporary world. We will be experimenting with a variety of traditional and non-traditional mediums that will allow us to give our creative minds a voice and a presence! Finally, we will be enjoying and reaping the rewards of engaging in the creative process! I look forward to taking this journey with you!
