Artist-in-Residence Pamela Grumbach worked with St. Andrew's students to create "Memory Project" portraitures

Artist Pamela Grumbach visited St. Andrew’s School as the Artist-in-Residence under the auspices of the Happy White Endowment for the Arts during the week of April 8 - 12th. Grumbach is an accomplished artist currently specializing in Portraiture. While visiting St. Andrew's she will work with students to show them the power of portraiture and how to reach out to the world as members of the Memory Project. According to Grumbach, by participating in this project "Art students can create portraits for youth around the world who've been neglected, orphaned, or disadvantaged."

Pamela was educated at the University of Maryland and while at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, she studied with Nelson Shanks, a world renowned portrait artist, in his Studio Incammaniti in Philadelphia, PA. She has also taught at the George School in Newtown, PA for 31 years. You can view an art exhibit in the McCulloch Center for the Arts - Griffiths Gallery of Pam's beautiful portraits. Many of them are reproductions of the series of portraits that she painted while at the George School.

60 St. Andrew's art students chose a photo of an orphan from orphanges in Haiti and El Salvador. The different classes had the opportunity to use a variety of media in order to create the portraits. Upon completion, the final pieces are to be sent off to the Memory Project and personally delivered to the children by Project Director Ben Schumaker.

Through the generous support of the Happy White Endowment for the Arts, visiting artists spend several days to a week working with students in different visual art media.

At the end of each school year, a judge chooses two works of art—one two-dimensional, one three-dimensional—to be purchased for the School’s permanent collection, the Happy White Art Collection on display in the Ross Board Room in the McCulloch Center for the Arts.

Rhode Island state officials and AT&T to present at St. Andrew's School about the dangers of texting

Rhode Island's Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin, Department of Transportation Director Michael P. Lewis, State Police Major David Tikoian, and AT&T's spokesman Will Keyser are bringing attention to the dangers of texting and driving with a high school awareness tour that includes a presentation to the St. Andrew's community on Wednesday, January 9, 2013.

Invited speakers will bring AT&T’s powerful "Texting & Driving...It Can Wait"  campaign to Middle and Upper School students (grades 6-PG). After an introduction by the Head Master John D. Martin, students and teachers will view an AT&T documentary featuring families impacted by texting and driving accidents, and will then be asked to sign a pledge to not text and drive. Members of the Barrington Bay Team Kathy Sullivan and Joann Rowley have also been invited to attend the presentation.

“We are spreading the message to young drivers across Rhode Island: No text message is so important that it’s worth taking your attention off the road and risking lives in the process,” said Attorney General Kilmartin, who sponsored the state’s landmark legislation in 2009 banning texting while driving in Rhode Island.   “Whether turning the phone off, taking a pledge, or just making it a personal practice, the next time you think about sending or answering a text while operating a vehicle please remember – It Can Wait.”

The St. Andew's community can then encourage others to bring awareness to the dangers of texting by visiting www.itcanwait.com and take a no-texting-and-driving pledge, and share their promise with others via Twitter (#itcanwait) and Facebook.

Over 100 members of the St. Andrew's community participates in International Coastal Cleanup

A new record of over 100 members of the St. Andrew's community participated in the program to rid the ocean of harmful trash on Saturday, September 15 at Bristol Town Beach near Colt State Park.

Numerous faculty members and students joined the international efforts to create a healthy environment. Volunteers collected over 400 pounds of trash, which included cigarette butts, plastic bags, food wrappers, straws/stirrers, and fishing line, which had entangled a sea gull.

The initiative, spearheaded by the Ocean Conservancy and sponsored locally by the Audubon Society of RI, is the world's largest volunteer effort for ocean health with more than nine million volunteers from 152 countries and locations participating.

Generous donations for the volunteers were provided by Dunkin Donuts, Bagels, Etc. and an anonymous donor.
