Apparently semester one was way faster than I ever imagined as I didn't get any posts up OR my posts are missing OR I was tweeting instead...?!
Anyway, WELCOME to SEMESTER TWO in B327! I'm looking super forward to meeting all my new students and getting right into some art projects...
Can't wait to meet you...
The Room... some Visual Arts 12 students...
Stewart Winrob is the new High School Ambassador in the Halifax region for LaSalle College, Vancouver- formerly the Art Institute of Vancouver where he worked for over 10 years, most recently as the Director of Admissions. He's now relocated to this beautiful city.
What is LaSalle College Vancouver? - they are private post-secondary Art and Design College offering Diploma and Bachelor's programs that allow students to develop the skills for creative careers. They have 22 campuses on 5 continents and, through their Career Services team, offer their students assistance in finding positions in these fields.
As educators, we've learned that the student who wants be a nurse or an auto-mechanic is relatively easy to help. Not so easy to define and harness the creative ones. What do we do with the students who spend a great deal of their time drawing, painting, creating their own computer games or animations, cooking the family dinner, designing their own clothes, writing and producing songs – where do they go? What Stewart aims to do is give these students a window into these creative industries and real ways to make a living doing what they love.
Stewart will be offering a highly-visual 45 minute career exploration presentation in Design, Media Arts, Culinary and Fashion and more. The focus of this presentation is not on LaSalle College ( He recognizes that our school may not be right for every student) but on the skill development, personal attributes, industry information and career opportunities, in support of their curriculum, that are critical to finding employment in these highly competitive fields. He will, however, talk about the process of researching and applying to schools, understanding admissions requirements and investigating scholarship and financial aid opportunities.
THIS OPPORTUNITY is happening in Room B327 (Ms. Perry's classroom) on Wednesday, September 27th from 11:24- 12:24, during her grade 12 class time.
(Any questions for Mr. Winrob could run into the lunch period, if need be...)
Ms. Perry, here, checking in after a fabulous summer!! I've included a pic of my daughter and I, reliving some summery moments...I hope you're ready for the first day back to school. Lots of fun times ahead.
I look forward to meeting with all of you in B327 :0)
We had the pleasure of having Brittany Warren, photographer working with ArtsSmarts, join our Visual Arts 11 class the last week of April 2017 and with Ms. Perry, Mrs. Aubrecht (our fabulous student teacher for March and April), and Ms. Warren we had NSCAD U alumni brimming over!! More pinhole camera photos to be posted....
One of our former HWHS grads, Yunjung Lee, just had her design exhibition at the Port Loggia Gallery at NSCAD U.'s Port Campus this past week. We wish you well as you head into the work world and wow them with your talents!! We're proud of you <3

Ms. Nicholson is teaching the first few weeks until I return when I look forward to making art with you....
You can reach Ms. Nicholson at NicholsonP@hrsb.ca
Pick up your art supplies as soon as possible, build yourself a portfolio to store your work inside and keep in the classroom, and please start your first monthly homework assignment soon (two drawings per week at app. one hour per work is a GREAT pace)!
Hey all! I'm off on medical leave until the beginning of 2nd semester. You are in good hands with my long-term sub, Patti Nicholson. You can reach her at NicholsonP@hrsb.ca
Have a wonderful holiday season and take care <3 Ms. P.
