ADOBE INTERNATIONAL CONTEST WINNERS!
Announcing: My HHS AP Art students claimed EIGHT of the total 24 winner spots in this year's Adobe International Youth Voices Competition!
Back in October, as a lesson in professionalism and juxtaposition, I created a series of class assignments based on Adobe's Hope & Hardship theme, and had my students submit.
The news came last week. I am SO proud of these students and their recognition.
See our awarded entries in the gallery at right, and all the winners (from Beijing to Moldova) online HERE.

The hooped shelters for the laying hens and turkeys at Afton Field Farm. These structures are easily movable and travel around the Jones' property which stretches to the line of trees in the distance. Continual movement ensures fresh grass for the animals and even fertilizing for the grass.

John Gotti has been riding a fixed-gear bike since 2007. The bike has taken many different forms. His first bike was a Peugeot road frame, and he currently rides a Milwaukie Bruiser F-700. He began riding fixed because of the extraneous features and unreliabilty of the traditional road bike.
A fixed-gear bike is unique to the rider and is always a work in progress. No part of this bike came with any other part. From left to right: Wheel (w/cogset), seat, headset, handle bars, spokes, frame (w/crankset), forks, pedals, stem, lights, chain, and wheel.
