Morning Announcements for Tuesday, March 12,  2019

Good Morning BHS. It’s Tuesday, March 12. Here are your announcements for today: 

The Rembrandt Convention is a statewide student art convention.  There is a keynote speaker who is a professional artist and two workshops where students learn techniques such as watercolor, mask making, anime drawing, etc.  We compete in the costume contest, special project, and art competition each year.  Students are judged regionally against their own school first.  Any student work judged to be worthy moves to the state competition to be judged against the other schools present. Students who competed at the state level include Milana Rovella, Sebastian Williams-Lacey, Zariah Williams Lacey, Julia Costa, and Madison McKinley.  At the state level, Madison McKinley took 1st in photography, BHS Art Club took 1st and Julia Costa took 3rd in graphic design, Julia Costa also placed 2nd in black and white drawing.  

Also, Miss Reints and Madison McKinley took 1st in the Greek Mythology category for the costume contest, and Julia Costa took first in the Egyptian Legend category. There is also a purchase award each year where a student receives $500 for their piece and it becomes part of the permanent collection in a gallery down state.  This year we won that as well with Julia Costas’ black and white drawing entitled Losing Myself.    We took first place for the special project developing artwork for and creating a usable deck of Magik cards.  Madison McKinley was awarded the most valuable art cub member and this year we came home with 3 state officers including Karisma Rodriguez and Sebastian Williams-Lacey in public relations and Julia Costa as Rembrandt President.
