UCSD's Spin on Art

May 20, 2016

If you've been to the high school since last Tuesday, you might have noticed that the UCSD Kaleidoscope Art Show has adorned the hallways providing all passersby a feast for the eyes. Art teacher Finn Palmer curated the show which included 90 pieces of artwork from students in fifth through twelve grade.   

Tuesday evening, members from the Aleutian Arts Council stopped by to judge the works and promptly headed to the auditorium to announce the winners, as seen below:     

5th Grade 1st Place: Angelina Semon for "Untitled" 

Unalaska City School 6th grade teachers Amber wood and Finn Palmer hosted a “living wax museum" displaying students at statues outside of the 6th grade classrooms last Wednesday.

This was a special biographical project in which each student was asked to choose one historical figure that they’d like to represent in the form of a “living wax statute.”  The students invited friends and family to come see the exhibit, but had to remain still until a guest pressed a hand-made button that launched the statues into a monologue about his or her life.

Signs of spring are everywhere this month.  As the snow melts, the results of a winter's worth of stormy weather is revealed. Trash has accumulated on the beaches and along the roads.  The Community Center organizes two weeks of intensive spring clean-up each year to address this issue.  The effort makes a big difference in the beauty of Unalaska.  

The Missoula Children's Theatre has been a vibrant part of spring in Unalaska for over 12 years, and this year was no exception.  The Missoula Children's Theatre's mission is build life skills in children through participation in the performing arts.   Two person teams travel to communities all around the United States, where they recruit local youth and cast, rehearse, and perform a play in 5 days.

The Channel 8 Auction was last weekend on February 26th and 27th and it was a huge success!  Thanks to the support of volunteers and donors from all over the community,  the two-day event raised over $19,000! KUCB auctioned off more than 200 items, and all funds support Channel 8 TV's operating budget.  

The volunteer auctioneers pulled out all of the stops to encourage community members to bid high and bid often: they sang, they danced, they modeled products with style and grace and in the process provided great entertainment for viewers.
