Folly Quarter Middle School is excited to have the opportunity to host a South African Mosaic Artist in Residence from Feb. 6 to 12. The visit is sponsored by the Folly Quarter PTA, and will allow art students to learn about the process of creating a mosaic.

As part of the Artist in Residence project, students will create a mosaic mural legacy that will be a part of the school's 10-year anniversary celebration this year. Upon completion, the mural will be permanently displayed at the school.

Seventh grade art students, in collaboration with the seventh grade English department at Glenwood Middle School, are also enjoying the opportunity to work with a PTA-sponsored Artist in Residence.

Katherine Dilworth, a fiber artist, has worked with students to create several felt banners to enrich the 7th grade English curriculum on injustice. The banners will be used as teaching tools in the classroom. The students will also create anti-bullying banners for the cafeteria.

A few weeks ago I shared news of the winners of the 2012-2013 PTA Reflections Program from Bushy Park Elementary School and Glenelg High School. I recently received news of the winner of the PTA Reflections Program from Folly Quarter Middle School.

This year's theme was "The Magic of a Moment" and students did a great job of creatively illustrating this theme. Students who had entries from Folly Quarter Middle School that will now advance to the county level for judging include Jalyn Cox, Jeffrey Read, Brian Rohner, Gabrielle Lewis and Eric Frank.

Since 1969, the National PTA Reflections Program has encouraged students across the nation and in American schools overseas to explore their artistic talents.
