In celebration of Youth Art Month, we have a number of “featured artists” with work on display in several places.
PORTLAND MUSEUM OF ART SHOW:
Each March, the PMA hosts a display of artwork by students from throughout Maine. Each school is allowed only ONE representative piece. This yearʼs selected artist is 7th grader Anneka Murrin. Her lovely tempera painting titled “Cosmic Abnegation”, is HMSʼ show submission (see photo). The show runs throughout March.

Along with Mrs. Fletcher, two HMS 8th graders will present the art unit “Artistʼs Choice/ Artistʼs Voice” at the March 14 meeting of the Yarmouth School Committee. Mary Kate Gunville and Conner Pearl will share their exemplary artwork and writing from the lesson. Mary Kateʼs piece is an oil pastel painting, and Connerʼs is an acrylic.
