TSA biology students have been working with glass in the studio and doing what they do best at TSA, art integrations!! Pamela Haywood-Imbrogno’s students spent a day with art teacher, Liz Hayes, creating diatoms in glass! What’s a diatom you ask?! Diatoms are a major group of micro algae found in bodies of water. They secrete their own cell wall, which is made of Silica (GLASS)!! Students were assigned one of the GREAT LAKES and created a diatom specific to that lake. Diatoms are an important tool used to determine the conditions of a body of water. See the students’ creations below!

This month features student work from the studios of Joy Carson, Liz Hayes, Lydia Horvath, Stephen Johnston, and Leslie Taylor-Watza. This exhibition shows the variety of styles and techniques practiced in each studio. Each work shows the students’ progress and achievements throughout the fall semester. There is a great variety among the works not only in content, but in the medium. The works include photography, digital art, watercolor, cut paper, glass, jewelry, graphite and more

The students of Toledo School for the Arts have the opportunity to participate in a plethora of clubs and organizations after school. One of the newest is the Speech and Debate team. That’s team and not club. Mr. Szparagowski is one of the advisors. He never did speech and debate in high school, but he was a participant in model united nations and says that both build character. Last year, the team was created, but this is the first year that it is actually up and running by request of the students. Students have the opportunity to compete in multiple categories where they can recite monologues, write and perform original pieces, or debate hot topics.

The Memory Project is a unique initiative in which art students create portraits for children and teens around the world who have been orphaned, abandoned, neglected, or otherwise disadvantaged.  To participate, artists receive pictures of children who are waiting for portraits.  The artists then create the portraits, and The Memory Project coordinates the delivery of the portraits to the children.  The goal of the project is to inspire caring in the student artists and a positive sense of self in the orphanage children.  The project is directed by the nonprofit organization My Class Cares, and is funded at TSA by the generous support of the Parents’ Org.
