MHS – MHS Alum Meets with Art Students

Moorestown High School Art Department students were given a wonderful opportunity to meet with Sean Allen – the artist commissioned to create an augmented reality mural over this past summer in our high school. Several presentation and Q & A sessions took place yesterday – given by Mr. Allen and two of his colleagues in the visual arts and augmented reality/virtual reality fields – explaining how art, technology, math, science and communication skills were all utilized through the design process and completion of the artwork.

Sean Allen is a Mooretown High school alum and graduate of Carnegie Mellon University – working as a Business Strategy Analyst for Citizens Bank in New York City. Mr. Allen is also a creative (@ayecrtv) visual artist in his free time. Now living in Brooklyn, NY, he travels and works in multiple mediums, subjects, and sizes. From spray-painted, abstract/geometric murals with augmented reality capabilities to animated digital illustrations and oil painting portraits on canvas, Mr. Allen has been commissioned to create art throughout the United States. His aYe collection can now be viewed via www.ayecrtv.com.

Pumpkin Book Reports

At Roberts Elementary, Mrs. Asztalos’ and Mrs. Furman’s second-grade classes created pumpkin book reports. Each student was asked to select their favorite book. Next, the students had to discuss their characters in a story. They each picked one character and created the character on a small pumpkin. Last, the students filled out the book report form that asked them to describe their character and also give their opinion of their book character. It was AMAZING how proud the students were when they presented their pumpkin reports to their classmates. The pumpkins are displayed in the library.

Candy for US Troops

Mrs. Furman’s class wanted to thank the US troops by writing thank you letters and donating 27 bags of Halloween candy to them. We hope they like it!

Pumpkin Math Activities

Students in Mrs. Furman’s second-grade class competed for many hands-on pumpkin math activities. The students were asked to work in two groups to predict, count, weigh, compare by subtracting, make groups of ten, solve math word problems and measure pumpkins. We even learned that a 250-pound pumpkin will FLOAT!!
