European Art Classroom: Italy and Farewell

Mar 7, 2017 8:28:22 PM
The week started with everyone packing up the house for the last time. A bittersweet feeling knowing we only have this week left. We then piled into the car and drove the short distance of only an hour and a half to Nice, France.

Mike's Notes: Set Changes

Mar 3, 2017 8:08:13 AM

Last Sunday afternoon I walked through the Norris Family Theater to the sound of power drills and pieces of the set for The Foreigner thumping to the ground. The living room, the fireplace, the windows, and the doors – everything was gone. Where the night before there had been the beckoning magic of Cooper and Amanda conjuring a separate reality, now screws clattered to the floor and lumber was being stacked. Jacob pushed through with a broom, a visual cue to the lessons of deconstruction. Moment passes to moment, season to season, term gives way to term. 

Proctor Arts: Winter 2017 Arts Review

Mar 1, 2017 8:00:00 AM

Head of School Mike Henriques shared a few words at the start of Monday’s assembly about the richness of the past weekend as he went from one event on campus to another. Student performances have been on display (in athletics, arts, and academics) over the past two weeks, with the center of attention at the Wilkins Meeting House and a celebration of the arts at Proctor!

European Art Classroom: Final Project Week

Feb 28, 2017 8:00:00 AM

It would be easy to write something sappy about how this week was our final week spent at our home in Aix and how sad it is that it is coming to an end. But it has been such an incredible week, filled with excitement and adventure, and we still have plenty of things to look forward to next week!

Proctor Arts Presents: The Foreigner

Feb 23, 2017 10:03:57 PM

Proctor's Arts Department presents The Foreigner written by American playwright, Larry Shue, and directed by Jen Summers as its winter production. The hilarious story lines follow equally powerful themes of racism, identity, and injustice as two British visitors spend time at a rural Georgia fishing lodge. Kudos to Proctor's cast and crew for putting on a tremendous show, and for fully embracing the depth of the content within the production. Enjoy this review of the play and be sure to reserve your tickets for this weekend's performances (see link at the bottom of this post)! 

European Art Classroom: Reflections of Spain

Feb 20, 2017 3:12:07 PM
It is hard to believe that we have been in Europe for 6 weeks. With just two full weeks left, it is especially important to soak in all of the precious moments as we experience them. I personally find it sad.

European Art Classroom Prepping for Spain

Feb 14, 2017 8:00:00 AM

As I spend more and more time in Aix, the less I want to leave. I cannot believe that we only have like 3 weeks left on European Art Classroom. I have learned so much and cannot wait to learn more.

Proctor Arts: Backstage Access to The Foreigner

Feb 9, 2017 8:00:00 AM
The winter production of  “The Foreigner” is moving into the final month. The set construction crew is working at breakneck speed to complete the set, the costumers are sewing and distressing and searching the vast reaches of the costume shop, and the cast of the show is learning their lines and working out the kinks in the blocking. Energy is high and everyone is looking ahead to opening night.
