FINAL WORDS WITH NHS AIR, MARTY CARNEY

RECEPTION PHOTOS FOR NHS AIR, MARTY CARNEY

Marty is our fourth artist in residence at Sheboygan North High School. A reception is a great way to celebrate the success of the artist’s accomplishment during our Spring semester. Although his time was dedicated to connecting with NHS students and staff he also created several paintings. Receptions are always unpredictable. It is probably one of the most nerve racking parts of being an artist because you never know who is going to show up. 

In this case, Marty had a fab turnout. It was great to see our administration present, aspiring poets, fellow colleagues, former artists in residence, and friends. For the third time, Ms. Cavanaugh’s poetry students wrote poems based on a painting from the artist they liked and read them to the people present. The poetry readings are starting to become a tradition that has found a home at NHS. Marty shared how his paintings were influenced by ecology. Mr. Soik, Honors Humanities teacher, shared how having Marty weekly made a difference in how his students interacted with the artist resulting in a beautiful assemblage. 

This program has presented many wonderful opportunities to strengthen our bond as a North High community as well as to welcome unexpected events and embracing them whilst letting things flow where they may.

Marty writes, “This exhibit expresses various encounters and experiences that I’ve had during the Spring 2016 Semester as AiR | Artist in Residence at Sheboygan North High School.  I’ve enjoyed this wonderful adventure of experiencing Sheboygan spirit in different ways from the perspectives of the young adults and their teachers in our community”.

“Whether in Art Club after school with Mr. Juarez and Ms. Mattern, interacting with Mr. Soik and his Honors Humanities Class, or creating my own artwork, it has been a memorable privilege.  I am grateful to Mr. Juarez for making this opportunity possible”.

This past week has been filled with a variety of creativity with classes at North High School for Artist-in-Residence, Marty Carney.  On Friday, March 11th, a group from Mr. Soik’s Honors Humanities II class chose to participate in an “ArtPlosion” in the OpenSpacesStudio.  The students created images which helped them to integrate their learning about Roman civilization and to prepare to write a major paper.  Below you see the students at work and then several of their finished products.

Marty Carney, the Artist-in-Residence continues to meet with Mr. Soik’s Honors Humanities II Class as they explore Roman civilization.  Next week, the class will meet in the OpenSpacesStudio to create an art project which expresses and focuses their learning thus far about Rome.  Mr. Soik is calling this event: “ArtPlosion.”  Sounds like an adventure!

This week has also included participating in Mr. Soik’s Honors Humanities II class as they explored the principles of Roman civilization.  In a few weeks Marty will brainstorm with the students creative, “out of the box,” projects which they could potentially create to express what they have learned about Rome.  Below is a snapshot of the class work detailing the principles of Rome.  (To better understand what will eventually become their class assignment, Marty listened and served as a recorder for the discussion as you see below).

Finally, with the help of art teacher, Mr Juarez, Marty has begun a collaboration with Mrs. Heidemann for a potential art project about color and light within her chemistry class. Here’s a view of the notes about that potential project…
