Central Middle School
Art Teacher: Pam Brandt
Students worked together to create a fabric square to be used as part of a large installation piece/quilt which will be on display at the National Art Education Convention in Fort Worth, Texas in March and then eventually part of a large covering made up of about 8000 pieces of artwork from around the world to wrap the 363’ vertical Saturn V Moon Rocket replica at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama in May and June 2014. We are also working on getting the exhibit to travel to Hartford for a month this spring.
All homerooms are being challenged to create their own square to best represent the themes of RESPECT & RESPONSIBILITY, as well as to “Dare to Dream” to expand beyond the present state of the world and to imagine their impact on the future. Each grade level have a different focus in order to cover all areas:
· 6th grade – Respect and Responsibility for the Environment
· 7th grade – Respect and Responsibility for the Self
· 8th grade – Respect and Responsibility for the Others
