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 2013-
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 Arts and Crafts Club Meets every Wednesday afternoon from 3-4 pm starting September 18

Ellie is part elephant, part turtle, part lion, and part bee. Her back is the shell and legs of a turtle, wings of a bee, nose of an elephant, and a tail and fluffy main like a lion. Ellie is about the size of an elephant. Next, is Ellie's animal behavior. She lives in ThneedVille where the Loax lives. The climate is vary humid and hot. Her predators are all of the who's from Whoville. They annoy her too but she can't handle them. Ellie's food source is the Truffula trees. They are so juice, she loves them. When they are all gone she will have nothing to live off of. Finally, is Ellie's myth or special story. Her parents put her in a capsule and shot her to a different planet because there was a bad war coming on her original planet. Ellie landed in ThneedVille as just a little baby. As she was growing up, he only friends were insects that lived in the trees. Ellie is a herbivore so she eats the Truffula trees. As she was growing she has been noticing that ThneedVille was looking more red and blue. She realized every time she eats a tree ThneedVille turns into Planet Of The Monsters. So finally Ellie ate all the trees and she couldn't survive in Planet Of The Monsters so she died.

My mythological creature is called the Catacornat. I am going to tell you about what it eats and where it lives and what it does. The catacornat lives near the ocean on the ground. It eats different kinds of animals that don't like us. It flies to different places and lands where they want to. The catacornat is so reliable because it can depend on people and it can fly to the places the kids need to go. My catacornat is in a ocean and it starts swimming around and as you know that the catacornat is a very strong and powerful creature. My mythological creature is about a catacornat and what the lifestyle is about. The catacornats lifestyle is about what it eats and where it lives. It lives in the ocean and eats bugs that we don't like.

My mystical creatures name is miles and is made of a cat, bird and snake. I'm going to tell you about how my creature looks, how it behaves and a myth about my creature. To begin with, miles is a creature that looks like a cat with bird wings and a snake. Miles only comes out at sunset and stay out during the night. He doesn't see very well with his dark blue eyes but his snake has glowing yellow eyes that help guide miles and tell him where to go. Miles can run really fast. Also, Miles doesn't behave very well. He gets into a lot of trouble. He gets into people's trash. He blends into the trees and makes it so all you can see is the glowing eyes on the snake. If your wondering about miles, he came from Mexico. His father was a mix of a bird and snake and his mom was just cat. Miles is extinct now. He was the only one of his species and he got caught getting into someone's trash and they killed him. In conclusion, Miles is a cat snake and bird. He doesn't behave well. Miles is an interesting looking cat and he doesn't exist anymore.
