On Nov. 13, Rotary’s weekly lunch at Crissey Farm featured a presentation by Monument Mountain Regional High School art teacher Neel Webber of some of the best work in this year’s Halloween poster contest.
“This event provides our students with the much needed opportunity to contribute their skills and energy to the supportive community where they live.”
— Neel Webber, Monument Mountain Regional High School art teacher
“The event offers all the students a sense of accomplishment by having their art chosen to be painted in downtown Great Barrington in what now had become a popular and highly competitive school wide competition.” –Neel Webber, Monument Mountain Regional High School art teacher
News of the Scholastic awards for art came, however, at the moment Berkshire Hills Regional School District proposed trimming its budget by, among other things, reducing one art teacher at the high school, devastating the art community at the school, and diminishing the program’s offerings.
