There will be an art show in May and a day long conference in April. “I love to see the creative things my students can come up with,” said Pomerank. Howe was also proud to admit she had a few seniors putting together portfolios for future artistic jobs.
Currently, Pomerank’s Pottery students are working on additive vases where they connect two coil pots and adding something descriptive to the outside. She spoke of doing subtractive work next which means they’ll be carving out of the clay.
In addition, Howe’s Painting class is working on mixing their primary colors. Every student in that class is responsible for painting a picture without using a single color straight from the bottle. Howe and Pomerank truly love what they do. "Working with the students and seeing them grow is my favorite part of teaching," said Pomerank. They spoke of how well the kids are doing even though we've had less class time so far. "The kids are doing wonderful, and I love being able to do a little of everything in each class."
Talk to your counselors about signing up for art next semester. Howe and Pomerank love to see new faces!
