Fine Arts Year in Review

The 2018-2019 school year was a huge success for our Roger Bacon artists. Below is the RB Fine Arts Year in Review.

Students in the National Art Honors Society have been working hard on projects, applying to local art shows, and advocating for the arts. This fall, they made small works of art to give to the veterans who visited Roger Bacon. Over Christmas, students created giant ornaments to decorate the art room. In the spring, students helped hang and display work for the Fine Arts Festival as well as put their baking skills to good use by providing treats during the show.

The Art Club has been hard at work since the being of the year planning art installations around the school. For the Christmas season the students measured, planned, and created a stained glass mural that was constructed to fit the large front window that could be viewed from inside or outside the school. It depicted a scene of an angel praying with candles and holly. They also made Christmas cards of watercolor color Christmas Trees for family and friends. Once the students returned from Christmas break, they have been busy creating all the parts for an installation that will be exhibited in the fine arts hallway. 

The Class of 2019 started a new tradition. Every year the graduating class will design, create, and paint a mural on the walls of the cafeteria. Designs will be an original creation that allows every graduating senior to sign his or her name to be part of history in the halls of Roger Bacon. The first mural is the Class of 2019's Cosmic Galaxy Mural -- it’s outta this world!! Great job seniors!!

Numerous students had artwork on display around town and in national competitions. Below is a list of those students and highlights of their work.
