Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy: Library Turns Artsy for Teen Read Week

To commemorate Teen Read Week, the Visual & Performing Arts Department of Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy teamed up with the Library to highlight how the arts are represented in literature and vice versa.

Librarian Nora Murphy outfitted the Library with works by Sculpture I students that explored the use of color as well as interpretations of book covers completed by Art I students. Books on the many different genres and mediums in the visual and performing arts are displayed on the shelves, and the Library’s blog and Facebook page feature info on arts libraries, art that uses books and paper and the reading habits of every VAPA teacher.

During lunch on Thursday, October 18, students in Advanced Theatre classes performed dramatic readings from popular literature — Addie Wolfe ’13 and Emma Woodman ’13 took on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, and Ally Clapp ’14, Meg Kelley ’14, Kaitlyn Khalaf ’14 and Sophia Garcia ’14 tackled Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. Jenny Jordan ’13, Nichola Marick ’13 and Gracie Raymond ’13 will do the same with Peter Pan during enrichment on Monday, October 22.
