MCMS celebrates National Arts Month with a Feast

The Middle School kicked off their celebration of the National Arts Month through an exhibit at the Our lady of Peace Lobby last February 1, 2017. The Dance Club creatively led the unveiling with a dance interpretation. Carrying the theme “Art Feast”, the event showcased not only the students’ art work but also several dishes guised as art activities.

Long buffet tables laid were laid out in the Calachuchi Garden where students held their Entrep Art from February 1 to 2.  Grade 8 students, with the able guidance of their HELE teachers, experienced how it is to be entrepreneurs as they sold maki and decorative cupcakes.  The Cartoonists club, with the help of their club moderators, offered printing services, while Tiny Path sold art supplies. The students experienced what it’s like to be entrepreneurs first hand as they prepared, marketed, and sold their products.  They also learned simple accounting, doing the inventory and computation of their profits or losses.  The activity taught them how to run a business and at the same time how to use art could be used to attract more clients.

Another activity featured was the interaction between the MCMS students and the MC HEU Applied Arts students last February 2, 2017. College students from the Department of Humanities and Applied Arts taught MS students basic drawing techniques, calligraphy, animation, and photography.

Several contests such as the PICS Perfect Photography contest for Grade 6 (February 16), On-the-Spot Art for the Grade 7 (February 17) and the Eight Asian Treasures (February 28) were also held, capping the MS National Arts Month celebration.
