Nipmuc Fine Arts Festival 2013

On May 14th at 6:00pm Nipmuc is proud to hold the opening of its annual Fine Arts Festival. Each year our school looks forward to this opportunity to display the amazing work of our student-artists. If you have ever enjoyed the chance to walk Nipmuc's halls, then you are familiar with the impressive art that is created in our award-winning art program. Art teachers Mr. Campbell and Mrs. Clish, along with all of their students, are excited to welcome you to view more than one thousand pieces of student art, including portfolios for many of our Advanced Placement students and upperclassmen. The art show opens at 6pm on Tuesday, 5/14 in the Nipmuc gymnasium. 

I also want to make parents aware that some of the work of our Advanced Placement students deals with mature themes including drugs/alcohol abuse and self-harm or "cutting". Due to the mature nature of the themes and the artwork, some of this work will be placed in specific sections of the gym, allowing those who attend the Fine Arts Festival to choose if they would like to view the work. If your child plans to attend the art show tomorrow night, I encourage you to attend with him/her. 
Our students' paintings, photography, illustrations, sculpture, and all other forms of art have become a great source of pride for our school. I invite everyone to share in that pride on Tuesday night. We hope to see you there.
