NSCD eighth grade students created animal paintings that are now on display. During the most recent winter trimester, Middle School Art Teacher Brad Rose had the students look at traditional impressionism and how it relates to the Industrial Revolution. Next, the young artists drew their animals as value studies, and then added texture with brushstrokes that were intended to represent that of their animal.
North Shore Country Day’s annual 10-minute play festival “Take 10” returned to the stage on April 13. For the first time in three years, students performed their original plays in front of a live audience with performances in the NSCD Auditorium.
All seven plays were written, produced and directed by students in the upper school directing class. Some were based on personal experience, observations and media events, while others stemmed from pure creativity. Once the scripts were finalized, the student directors held auditions, cast the roles and ran their own rehearsals.
