Two Assumption students received Metro-Arts Apprentice fellowships for the 2018 summer session.
Congratulations to Marissa Shell and Trenton McDonough. Marissa will be part of a group painting public murals in the QC area. Trenton will be pursuing a group photography project.
Metro Arts apprenticeships must be applied for through Quad City Arts. A lengthy application process includes letters of recommendation, portfolio review as well as one-on-one interviews.
Congratulations to both Marissa and Trenton!
A big thank you goes out to Assumption Art Club for service projects completed. Students created kite props for St.Paul’s musical Mary Poppins. Students also painted an Assumption-themed bags game donated from Mr. Dave Simpson to April Knight. Art Club members who worked on the projects included: Kenneth Nguyen, Marissa Shell, Alexisciel Dinh, Hannah Lerch and Amanda Herrington.
April Knight was also the benefactor of a couple more artistic endeavors. Gracie Miller beautifully painted a round serving platter in a floral bouquet theme. Advanced Graphic Art students Marissa Shell, Pamela Moya and Trenton McDonough teamed up to create a 3-D printed chess set which was auctioned off at April Knight as well.
Thank you to all these creative students who donated their time and talents to worthy causes.
