Pittsfield Middle High School

Pittsfield, New Hampshire
Welcome to our visual arts gallery on Artsonia. Thank you for visiting and supporting the arts. The money generated through Artsonia will help purchase art supplies for the school.

September 2015
It’s great to be back for another year of art activities at Pittsfield Middle High School. My hope is to guide students in learning visual art skills and personal expression by creating inspired works of art.
I believe:
A quality art education can help develop a student’s visual language.
A quality art education can help develop a student’s creative thinking and problem solving skills.
A quality art education can help nurture the spirit of a student, establish positive values and compassion for others.

The Loose Leaf Arts and Literature Magazine will meet the 3rd Tuesday each month

Box turtles are listed as threatened. They are considered endangered by many conservationists. They live in open fields and dense forests. The are commonly found in Mesic Woodlands. They are endangered because loss of habitats, collisions with cars, and illegal trade. Another reason they are endangered is they always return home and the government won't help. They have a domed shell

First, where puffins live. For most of the year Puffins live on open ocean with a range of places from Canada to Northern United States, to Europe and Northern Russia. 60% of Puffins live near Iceland. Puffins are adapted to living on open ocean. Second, what puffins eat. Adult puffins mostly eat fish,eels, herring, hake and capelin. Puffin diest vary from colony to colony because of the variety of fish around and near the fishing islands. But their preferred food is fish. Third, why they're endangered. They are no endangered but they are threatened by human activities. They are rare in places where they used to thrive. As a result, it is important to protect puffin breeding and feeding habitat. In some parts of their range there are just a few colonies.
