Another fun trip during the Michigan Art Education Association's conference was our visit to the Center for Creative Studies (CCS). This is a college where you can study all sorts of art related careers AND it is located across from the Detroit Institute of Art... what an inspiring location!!! We saw student work from the graphic design, automotive design, interior design, product design and advertising!! What an exciting place! I want to go back to college!!
Mrs. Larsen and I attended the annual Michigan Art Education Association conference. This year it was held in Dearborn. We toured the Arab American National Museum (what a beautiful building) and saw a variety of history and art. One fun exhibit was the fashion of Arab American Alfred Shaheen. His Hawaii themed shirts were even worn by Elvis Presley!

"Turning Art Into Food"
The Circle of Art is a charity event that helps raise money for Food Gatherers. Local artists donate work to the auction, and in turn, 100% of the bid goes to Food Gatherers.
Make sure you go online to take a look and bid right this minute on all of the artwork your fellow community members have generously donated. Participating in the auction is not only a great way to contribute to this vital cause, but providing that you win a bid, you can also acquire an original piece of art.
The charity event takes place on Sunday, May 16th from 12 to 5p.m. It would be a great addition to a weekend of art and many of the Saline Art Department staff has work in the auction.

Also, Mary has submitted a painting in the upcoming Circle of Art charity event at the Saline Frame Shop.
When asked about her creative side Mary says "Painting is more true of me than any other side of me. It becomes 100 percent of the person I am. Each time I paint I learn more and become more".

The pictures are of guest artist, Autum Fisher. She is a stone sculptor working in limestone and marble. She came into Ms. Hughes’ class March 30th along with Nicole Bidden's students for career enrichment and showed slides of her work and gave the students a stone carving demonstration. As you can see students were allowed to use her tools and carve into the stone.

THERE IS A CONNECTION, HARD TO EXPLAIN LOGICALLY BUT EASY TO FEEL, BETWEEN ACHIEVEMENT IN PUBLIC LIFE AND PROGRESS IN THE ARTS. THE AGE OF PERICLES WAS ALSO THE AGE OF PHIDIAS. THE AGE OF LORENZO DE MEDICI WAS ALSO THE AGE OF LEONARDO DA VINCI, THE AGE OF ELIZABETH ALSO THE AGE OF SHAKESPEARE, AND THE NEW FRONTIER FOR WHICH I CAMPAIGN IN PUBLIC LIFE, CAN ALSO BE A NEW FRONTIER FOR AMERICAN ART.
Letter to Miss Theodate Johnson, Publisher, Musical America, September 13, 1960
I AM CERTAIN THAT AFTER THE DUST OF CENTURIES HAS PASSED OVER OUR CITIES, WE, TOO, WILL BE REMEMBERED NOT FOR VICTORIES OR DEFEATS IN BATTLE OR IN POLITICS, BUT FOR OUR CONTRIBUTION TO THE HUMAN SPIRIT.
On behalf of the National Cultural Center which would come to bear his name November 29, 1962
TO FURTHER THE APPRECIATION OF CULTURE AMONG ALL THE PEOPLE. TO INCREASE RESPECT FOR THE CREATIVE INDIVIDUAL, TO WIDEN PARTICIPATION BY ALL THE PROCESSES AND FULFILLMENTS OF ART — THIS IS ONE OF THE FASCINATING CHALLENGES OF THESE DAYS.
"The Arts in America,” Look, December 18, 1962
THIS COUNTRY CANNOT AFFORD TO BE MATERIALLY RICH AND SPIRITUALLY POOR.
State of the Union Message, January 14, 1963
I LOOK FORWARD TO AN AMERICA WHICH WILL REWARD ACHIEVEMENT IN THE ARTS AS WE REWARD ACHIEVEMENT IN BUSINESS OR STATECRAFT. I LOOK FORWARD TO AN AMERICA WHICH WILL STEADILY RAISE THE STANDARDS OF ARTISTIC ACCOMPLISHMENT AND WHICH WILL STEADILY ENLARGE CULTURAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL OF OUR CITIZENS. AND I LOOK FORWARD TO AN AMERICA WHICH COMMANDS RESPECT THROUGHOUT THE WORLD NOT ONLY FOR ITS STRENGTH BUT FOR ITS CIVILIZATION AS WELL.
At Amherst College, October 26, 1963
I LOOK FORWARD TO AN AMERICA WHICH WILL NOT BE AFRAID OF GRACE AND BEAUTY.

The fourth graders at Pleasant Ridge recreated paintings by Henri Matisse using the grid system. Each student was given a 1" by 1" square from a photo of the painting "Green Stripe". Students used oil pastel to mix and blend colors to match the colors, lines, and shapes. Then, all of the squares were put back together to recreate the image of the painting.

Frances Iseda, 5th grade student from Mrs. Robke's room, created this collage with her grandmother. It's always great to see the art that students create outside of the classroom. Frances enjoys making art and learning about different collage techniques from her grandmother, which make this piece special to her.
