The first ever Bowl Olympics was held to prepare for and promote the Empty Bowls Fundraiser. Students and staff competed in 5 events on the pottery wheels, including Widest, Fastest, Blindfolded, Most Creative and Best Overall. At the end of each event, the bowls were judged and the winners were awarded necklaces with tiny pots as “medals”. Almost 40 bowls were created within 2 hours!
In the spirit of Spirit Week, four AP Studio Art students took on the challenge of painting a character from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas movie, onto a BHS student model of their choice. Each student artist was given a Tyvek suit for the challenge on the Monday prior to paint on. Face paint was used on their face and hands. On Friday, October 28th the students were on display in the cafeteria for all lunch waves and everyone had the opportunity to vote on Character Design and Performance Art. (The inspiration for this came from here.)
Also, Mr. LaPlante was able to create a video of the event.
The students involved were:
*Gabriel Dombrowski painting Jack Goodwin as “The Mayor”.
*Annalise Gormley painting Xander DeVoe as “The Scientist”.
*Noah Neault painting Jacob Neault as “Jack Skellington”.
*Donny Roski painting Emma Roski as “Sally”.
