The Arts Department at Stuart has expertly adapted their programming this year - from the virtual fall play to pop-up galleries around campus. Today, the Middle School enjoyed their annual World Arts Day- COVID style. It’s vitally important for children to have opportunities for creative expression - especially during this time - and if there was a way to make today happen, our faculty would do it! We’d like to thank the following artists for teaching virtually: Ruthann Perry, Ebony Flag, April Zay, Deborah Land, Josh Eileen, Tim Moran, N’fertiti, Uma Kapor and Cachet Ivey.
A big round of applause to Phyllis Wright for reimagining a beloved experience for our girls and to Allison Kohler for organizing the technology for instructors and virtual students.
Below is some feedback from students along with a gallery of images.
I would like to thank you for supervising us during World Arts Day! Today was very fun with the many activities like crafting African pillows, learning Indian dance, and doing improv! Me and my class have made really nice memories and I can’t wait to see what’s next! This world arts day was probably one of my favorite memories during my time at Stuart.
I would like to take this time to thank you for all of your hard work to make this special day happen. You have all worked very hard to make this year as normal as possible, and I appreciate it greatly. Today I enjoyed Bollywood dancing, improv, and designing African pillows. All of these activities were very enlightening, and I will get into the car today with a smile on my face. Thank you again for everything you have done.
