    Fine Arts Students of the Week

    fa_students.jpg

    Chances are, if you attended the 2016 Wesleyan Artist Market, you encountered one or all of this week's Fine Arts Students of the Week! Sixth grade students - Kendall Bowen, Savannah Johnson, and Sophia Shaffer - were busy chatting with potential customers about pets they might have at home. These young entrepreneurs want to introduce you to their business, "'My Best Buddy Bandanas." This April, they return to the Artist Market with the title of "Top Student Seller!” These girls have created and sewn dog bandanas out of various fabrics, including recycled Wesleyan skorts and pants! These can be embroidered with your pets's name and come in three sizes. Last year, they offered college team prints, and this year, they plan on offering holiday prints so your pets can get into the holiday spirit! Not only are they talented artists, but great sales people as well. Stop by and see them at the 19th annual Artist Market, April 27-29th. Even if you don't have a pet, you very well could walk away with a bandanna!

    Guest Conductor - HS Band

    Dr. Chester Phillips, Associate Director of Bands at Georgia State University, visited the high school symphonic band early last week to prepare students for an upcoming performance evaluation. He delivered some tremendous musical insight to help them achieve the highest level possible. He also instilled a mindset of how to go from good to great. “Right now you are good. You need to be willing to slow the pace of rehearsal allowing Mr. Foster to be more detailed and work on smaller, specific sections of the music. If you buy into that process, you will become great!” The symphonic band performs at the GMEA “Large Group Performance Evaluation” at Discovery High School in Lawrenceville on Wednesday, March 15th. All are welcome to attend. The event will be held in the theater at DHS.
