On April 27th, the Advanced Studio art students visited Shady Lakes for an en plein air art experience as it is a beautiful location for doing art in the “open air” like the French Impressionist. We were a little early to catch the water lilies in bloom, but it was a fantastic day for imagining how Claude Monet would have painted the Bosque.
“Mr. Morales’ honor guitar group performed this past Saturday at the District 7 Solo and Ensemble Festival. They performed there along with multiple other high schools from the Albuquerque and surrounding districts. They played “Fandango” for their judges and scored a 1+ superior rating, which is the highest possible score. The group consisted of Johnathan Ortiz, Connor Gonzales and Alejandro Sandoval. Connor Gonzales also performed a solo for the judges and got a 2 (Excellent) rating. They represented PAPA and the guitar program with excellence!!
PAPA Thespians and Advanced Actors attended a production of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar by Duke City Repertory Theatre Company. After the play, PAPA actors attended a workshop on Classic Text (Shakespeare & Greek) in Acting, taught by Duke City Rep Company Members. Ms. Beck’s students were really excited to work with professional actors and were thrilled to discover how dedicated DCRT is to changing the world through theatre.
