Foley students participate in Evening of the Arts Show

Foley Middle School held its 9th Annual December Evening of the Arts Show on December 13. It was a spectacular event of student artwork and performances. Sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students from Mrs. Weiner’s visual art class had artwork on display.

These works of art included sixth grade stippling projects in which they use dots to create a still life drawing of a paint bottle, to clay rattles made to look like animal heads or a fantasy creature head. Seventh grade students had Zentangle pattern drawings of hands on display and so much more. Eighth grade students had self-portraits, metal masks, and sculptural shoes in addition to other works of art. An exciting addition to the event was the Artist Trading Card contest. Students were each given a blank artist card, the size of a baseball card, and were free to create an original work of art using any form of media. These students will later swap their cards with other students. Several teachers also participated by creating cards for the swap.
In collaboration with the event, several other classes had class projects on display from mathematics, language arts, life skills, computer skills and industrial arts. Ms. Read displayed drawings inspired by novels her classes had read, Mrs. Gallion had mathematical charts inspired by Dr. Seuss’s book the Lorax about trees. Mrs. Turpin’s computer skills class created colorful typing art of popular images, such as the Hulk, snowmen, hearts and more. Small groups from Mr. Jone’s sixth grade band students were setup down each hall performing Christmas music. Mrs. Watts held CO2 car races and displayed rockets made by her students. All in all, it was a wonderful evening showcasing the many talents and skills of Foley Middle School’s students.
