Students create art with fire


LEXINGTON, SC — Continuing to offer engaging and interactive fine arts content, Pleasant Hill Middle School welcomed several artists-in-residence this year.

The S.C. Arts Commission provides funding for artists-in-residence and other fine arts programs through Arts in Basic Curriculum Advancement grants. PHMS received its second ABC Advancement grant this year.

Artist Bob Doster’s visit focused on metal artistry. With his guidance, students created a metal wall plaque representing the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens.

Students in Art Teacher Joanna M. Alford’s class created a scale drawing of their design for the plaque. Doster helped the students transfer the design onto a large sheet of stainless steel, cut out the design with a welding torch, then polish it to a gleaming finish. PHMS displays the plaque in a hallway to remind students of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens.

Other artists-in-residence included musician Jason Frith and members of the Columbia Children’s Theatre. Frith worked with band students taught by Ashley S. Gable in seventh and eighth grade. Thanks to his instruction, students improved their rhythm, technique and concert preparation in time for Spring Concert performances.

Lori L. McKelvey and Margaret LaNelle Simons’ eighth-grade drama students enjoyed watching and learning from the Columbia Children’s Theatre. After a performance of “Commedia Pinocchio,” actors hosted a question-and answer-session as well as a characterization workshop.
