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

Cool picture, Kellie - nice straight lines and cubes for the buildings. And of course, the country girl had to have a "cow" buliding! Cute! -- Eleanor

The girarkat is a mixture between a giraffe, shark, and cat. It is known to have a giraffes head, body of a shark, and feet and tail of a cat. It is found in the central area of Pittsfield, around the store known as Rite Aid. The Girarkat does not like a list of things though.. It does not like meat, bullies, soft music, the color purple, and school. The Girarkat mostly likes to sleep a lot in the day, and stays awake during the night. It tends to walk around in the day sometimes, only if it cannot sleep. It likes to hang around empty fields when it is awake. The Girarkat is also about to go extinct, because of the lack of care they get when they're younger.. Only some survive to be older than two years old. The legend of the Girarkat is something only a couple people hear... It started out as a simple giraffe... But the giraffe got lonely so the shark came in. They started to hang out with each other and soon decided to get a new friend. Along came the cat... It was just walking through the field when the two animals decided to tackle it. They played wrestled for a little bit and soon the god of animals chose to combine them all. This was probably the best day for all of them. Three friends combined into one.

The Tiker is an unusual animal. The Tiker is not a hostile creature but is it feels threatened it will attack. The Tiker has poor smelling and can’t detect any nearby threats, but has a snake for a tail and can see what’s behind it. The average size of a pack of Tikers is 5 to 7. This number can be higher. A female Tiker will train there young to hunt, fight, etc.The Tiker looks just like a Tiger but has a snake for a tail. Its claws are sharp and curved which helps it run and hunt. The Tiker has fangs that look look like a snakes fangs but has no venom. The Tiker has the wings of an eagle but he is unable to use the wings. The wings can help the Tiker jump.The Tiker only lives in Africa in the desert and jungles. It eats wild hogs, birds, mice, lizards, fish, and zebras. They are calm when usual things happen. They do get angry when they are threatened. The Tiker will attack when it is angry. If the Tiker doesn't know it doesn't stand a change, it will run.There are many theories that could be the reason why the Tiker came to be. One of them is that three animals had a child that combined all three. It was unusual because it was made of all three animals. The child looked like all three animals combined. He is also the reason we have Valentines Day.

The Porsefly is made up of three main animals, the horse, the pig, and the butterfly. This animal has head of pig, body and tail of horse, and wings of the butterfly. The Porsefly also has chipmunk teeth to eat its food and a unicorn horn for protection. The Porsefly eats rainbows out of a purple bucket. This beast has rainbow fur, yellow tail, and green and purple wings. The Porsefly was born with all the smartness in the world, yet has the brain the size of a walnut. The sound of a Porsefly is zaglonklagloak. Porsefly has a wonderful personality and only has a few dislikes such as: Bullies, School, Meanness, Rudeness, Bragging, and Dullness They great and magical Porsefly lives in the land of candy, in the rootbeer sky. They have bubble gum trees and live and sleep on clouds. To find their food they jump on the special rainbow clouds until they spit out rainbows. The clouds come in different colors depending on the gender and if their is a family. They sleep outside because it is always sunny, even though there are black clouds. The rare Posrefly only seen in the land of candy (only leaves once a year) is deadly and has a cute look. They only leave once a year to New Hampshire to see and play in snow, which they never get in land of candy. if they are seen by any human anywhere they will spit an acid rainbow that will melt them and kill them. They only kill for self defence and hate to kill living things because they have kind souls.
