Graphic Design: The MC

It is a pleasure to announce that MC School will be producing a student-driven literary magazine. The first edition of “The MC” will be published (digitally) at the end of this fall semester, 2016.

The MC is a special collaboration project between the Graphic Design elective and the Creative Writing elective. However, all students are encouraged to participate by submitting photography, videography, dance, poems, creative writing, opinion articles and all other creative works.

MS: Tunnel Books

Middle School is in the process of creating tunnel books. Through this project, students are learning about foreground, middle ground, and background, as well as how to construct 3D models based on their 2D sketches.

I am excited to share the outcome of their hard work in the coming weeks!

MS Name Sculptures

It is a pleasure to offer art as an elective to this year’s 7th and 8th graders. The first objective of this year’s class was to build stronger classroom community and relationships. To accomplish this, students were encouraged to consider aspects of their personal identities which they were then able to share with the class through their work.

Each student created cutouts of their names which had to be made three-dimensional. Additionally, each letter (and the base) had to incorporate some part of the student’s identities through color, symbols, pictures, or patterns.

Art & Ideas

Art & Ideas is a brand-new elective this year and focuses on student’s ability to find problems and then solve them using art and design. Instead of just making art, how can each student learn to think like artists?

Our first class was a problem solving activity with the following requirement:

Create a table that can hold a 20lb box of art supplies. The catch? Each student only has 30 minutes, a stack of newspapers, a small piece of cardboard and a strip of tape.
