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

Christina was cooking popcorn when suddenly she was knocked out by a lead pipe. When she woke up she was in another city. She was on a random island. She saw two houses and she was next to a river with fish jumping out of it and a tree nearby. Christina was looking around when she heard something. So she looked where the noise was coming from and it was just a a doe and its fawn feeding together. Then suddenly, Christina heard thunder and saw lighting strike a tree. The tree caught on fire, but the rain put it out.After several hours of rain, Christina finely starts to crawl to the 2 houses. But when she gets a least half way there, their was a huge ravine and she and threw a rope to her and pull her to the other side. When she got pulled to the other side and said thank you to the man who pulled her to the other side of the ravine and she ask the man if he would help her get to the two houses and he said yes. The man carried Christina to the two houses and one of them were Christina's house and when they went into Christina's house he sat her down on her bed and Christina said thank you and he said your welcome.

Christiania was going out for a long boat ride very early in the morning. She set sail at 5:09 am, she planed to leave at 5:00 but there were some boat malfunctions that held her back. She was bringing crabs and fish to the coast if Maine. Her boat was a gray sail boat, with a white flag. The day was pretty hot and by the time it was 1ish she decided that she wanted to go for a swim. When she was jumping off she cut herself and got blood on the boat. She immediatly got back on the boat and continued sailing.About a mile away 4 sharks smelled her blood. They began to follow the sent. They were really hungry for they have not caught a fish for 2 days now. As the sharks moved closer the smelt the aroma of fish as well. The sharks could fell their hunger growing, they were determined to get their lunch. The smell was getting stronger when they saw it..., a sail boat. The sharks went right for it. Christiania saw the shark fins and was frightened. She backed to the edge of the boat. She could see a circular island. She took her chances and jumped. As she was jumping the sharks took a big bite of the boat and some crabs got lose. The boat began sinking and the sharks got what they could of crabs and fish.Christiania made it to an island with a small palm tree on it (so did three red crabs). She leaned on the tree and knocked off a bunch of coconuts. The sharks did not leave so Christiania came up with a plan and stared knocking over the coconuts.

Christina was walking home from a long days work when she decided to take a short cut through the woods. Walking through the woods she saw a light shinning through the trees to the right of the path. Christina tried to ignore it but she simply couldn't. She then decided to go off the path towards the strange light. While Christina was walking she noticed it was starting to get dark. Christina started to walk faster and faster The light was getting closer with every step. Suddenly Christina fell to the ground. She thought she was dead. But she was still breathing. She couldn't feel her legs. She assumed they were broken. After a while of just laying there she decided to face the truth. Christina was going to die very soon if she didn't get up. She didn't feel like trying to walk because it was useless. But she kept telling her self to open her eyes and crawl to that light she so desperately wanted to see. She finally convinced herself to open her eyes. She stared straight up a hill. Her nose against the soft grass and flowers. She then crawled to the top. She looked up to see lights glowing above her head. There laid a beautiful tree with hanging lanterns with little blue flies flying around the tree while the big moon shined over it. Christina couldn't believe her eyes. She tried to close her eyes but she couldn't do it. She couldn't get up either. But she didn't care. She wanted to stay there forever.
