For the month of May, we will have a special exhibit at the Milpitas Library called "Art Speaks...Are You Listening?" which will feature 30 student works.  Here is a brief description of the exhibit. Each artwork is 18 X 24 created using oil pastels.


Can abstract art tell a story?  The students of Thomas Russell Middle school think so.  Students were asked to choose a word that is meaningful to them and then, through using line, shape, color and composition, convey the meaning through traditional art form, instead of the written word.  Each work of art on display is personal and original.  In the words of the poet, Rochelle Carr “Art has a voice – let it speak.”


Thank you for your past AVID Program support. On Wednesday, May 4 there will be another fund raiser to complete the 2015-2016 school year. Attached is the flier you will need to bring with you so that TRMS AVID Program will receive 20% of all sales and you will receive a free drink. Our thanks again.
