Blue Planet Exhibition ‘Habitat‘
On March 20, 2019, the ribbon was cut for Rose Marie Academy’s 16th annual Blue Planet Exhibition which opened for viewing and will be on display until March 29, 2019. Chatchanod, a senior high school student, did a great job of MCing the event. Child Center students treated all to their cute version of “It’s A Small World After All” Lastly senior high students recited personally selected poems with a connection to our environment.
The artwork this year featured a variety of pieces influenced by the theme “Habitat” from the Child Center students thru to Senior High School students. This theme was suggested by Fiat Devahastin who is a Fusion Artist and husband of Teacher Finola, our esteemed art teacher. As climate change has become such a serious issue for us all we encouraged our students to use recycled materials for their projects. Junior high students focused on different habitats and the effects climate change has on these places. Earthquakes, extreme heat, sandstorms, flooding, tsunamis, heavy snow storms-students explored the effect of these natural disasters and tried to solve the problems related to climate change.
Primary students explored different regions of the world such as deserts, deciduous forests, and tundra to name a few. This involved producing a large scale scene which also included the animals for each region.
Child Center students created dioramas of coral reefs, the city, and a rice farm they visited as part of their project. For the high school, students displayed their individual art work from both the General Art and the Art Foundation Art courses.
