Creative Programs in 2008. With a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies
(M.A.L.S.) from Wesleyan University, Joanna shares her passion for art
and history with her students and encourages self-expression through the
arts. Renee Malowitz, who teaches Afternoon Ceramics, is an artist and
arts educator who received her education from the School of the Museum
of Fine Arts in Boston and has worked at the School since 2012.
The next art show will be held at the Mount Wachusett Community
College High School Art Exhibit reception on April 11th at the college
gallery from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. The following evening select students,
mostly graduating seniors, will be showing their work at The Greater
Gardner Art Association Spring Art Exhibit in the category of high
school and college art. In past years, several Winchendon students have
earned art awards at these shows for their outstanding work.
This past fall, a number of students from all grade levels
participated in the Jaffrey Civic Center Fall Art Exhibit by invitation
of the Curator. The only artists in this juried show under eighteen
years of age included freshman Cathy Wang and Mankit Mau, junior Henry
Wang, and seniors Crystal Ngoje and Tina Liu. Tina has been accepted to
The Art Institute of Chicago and will matriculate there in the fall as a
design major. Crystal and Henry are also expecting to attend art
colleges in ’13 and ’14 to pursue careers in design.
The Winchendon School Winter Art Show will hang in the Dining Hall
until late April when the students’ work from the Spring semester will
open. Sculptures, pots, and ceramic wall hangings also reside in the
window alcoves along Ash Street and facing Cottage for all to see. Click here to view samples of work from the current art show thanks to the photographic efforts of Eliott Harvey and Angela Richard.
