Our Work/Our Choice 2015
4/10/2015
The ‘Our Work/Our Choice’ Art Exhibition opening reception took place at Watkinson on Monday, March 30th. In this art show, the work featured is voted in by the middle school student body. MS students work on their pieces for four to six weeks and then submit them to be judged their peers. Below are a few of the pieces and descriptions of them as told directly by the artists. 
 
A Word from Patrick Cronin (MS Art Teacher)
“I’m always amazed by the kids. They inspire me on a daily basis and surprise me with what they come up with. Sometime their ideas are just so well developed I’m just in awe of the way their minds work, the way they can build their ideas and their creativity. Some of the kids have so much depth and maturity in those areas and they’re making art that’s about something they care about. To me that’s really impressive for middle schoolers.
 
A lot of the students that are in this show are artists who have been recognized by their peers and voted into the show and in my view, they are some of the artists at our school who are most into their craft and most dedicated and that all just shows through in their work.”

Jason K. '16 Accepted to Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference
4/9/2015
by University of Hartford Communications Intern Kimberly Bigelow

Jason K., a junior, of West Hartford was recently accepted into the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference at Middlebury College in Vermont.

According to Jason, the Conference is a 4-day retreat in which emerging writers gather to attend various writing workshops led by diverse and experienced faculty.

Each applicant submits a piece of work to apply, and if accepted, submits a second work to develop over the 4-day weekend.

“The opportunity was presented to me by Ms. Mohler and I thought it was interesting,” Jason explained, “It’s always good to be able to have a chance to be in an environment where you have a group of like-minded people with a passion for writing. I thought it would be both stimulating and intriguing.”

Jason’s teacher, Patti Mohler, says she is very happy for him. “What I like about Jason is if I suggest a book, he’ll literally go read it,” Mohler said, “He’s curious, an intellectual learner and a self-starter. He’s a really good writer and just a delightful kid.”

Jason says he is extremely excited to head to Vermont. He described what was running through his mind the moment he discovered he was invited to attend.

“Excitement at the prospect of being able to share my work in a setting that is different from one I’ve been in previously, and excitement at the idea of hearing the perspective of other young interested writers,” he said.

Jason says that even though he doesn’t know the specifics just yet, he wants to pursue writing as a career in one way or another.

“I would say this is hopefully just the beginning,” Jason said, “Now that the ball is rolling I can maybe hit the ground running and begin to explore more publishing opportunities and presenting my work to a larger audience.”
