Art class Instructors

Holly Rosario was born in rural upstate New York, and spent her childhood exploring its forested terrain. Introverted and aesthetically curious by nature, Holly was interested in art from a young age. In 2007 she moved to Baltimore to attend the Maryland Institute College of Art where she pursued her Bachelors of Fine Arts in conjunction with a Master of Arts in Teaching. While at MICA, she developed an interest in watercolor, inks, paper cuts, and ceramics as well as a passion for art history.  As an artist, Rosario’s papercut works and watercolors are inspired by a love of nature on its most minuscule levels, and explore the role of pattern and repetition in the processes of growth and decay.  Rosario spent three years as an Elementary Art Teacher with Baltimore County Public Schools and is excited to continue her teaching at Maryland Hall.  She sees her pursuits as artist and educator as inseparably intertwined, and hopes to facilitate transformative learning by sharing her passion for the visual world.  She will be teaching visual arts classes for children.

Young artists

As frequent visitors to Annapolis, we have been privileged to attend several of the area's numerous cultural events.

On a recent night at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, the concert of the Annapolis Young Artists Program was one of the finest and most inspirational.

It was truly amazing to hear and to watch the professionalism of these young performers as they presented their summer string concert of various chamber and orchestral pieces under the excellent direction of Zack Stachowski, the conductor.

The newest addition to the program, the delightful junior artists ages 8 to 12, also performed some Beethoven and Handel.

If you get the opportunity to hear these students sometime, please do and bring your children and grandchildren who just might be inspired as well. What a great opportunity to learn leadership skills, team building and communication while expressing talent through the beauty of music.

The program was started in the basement of a church in Cape St. Claire. Founder Natalie Spehar deserves kudos for her vision for young musicians.

Bravo to all who made this event happen -- the staff, the students and Maryland Hall, for opening its doors for this event.

Recently the Legislatures of MD, PA and VA designated the second week in June as Chesapeake Bay Awareness Week and urged groups to hold events to re-invigorate public enthusiasm for the restoration of the Chesapeake Bay and our local waters. 

To celebrate this week the Annapolis Environmental Commission, Annapolis Green, Annapolis Community Foundation, Annapolis Conservancy, Spa Creek Conservancy and Back Creek Conservancy, invite you to attend a special Annapolis screening of the recently released film Beautiful Swimmers Revisited.  The film was inspired by the 40 year anniversary of the publishing of William Warners Pulitzer Prize winning book "Beautiful Swimmers: Watermen, Crabs and the Chesapeake Bay" and takes a look at how crabs and watermen are doing today. 

The free screening of this film will be held on Monday, June 6 from 7-8 pm at Maryland Hall's gymnasium. Filmmakers Sandy Cannon-Brown and Dave Harp will introduce the film, and afterwards the audience will have a chance to ask questions of several people featured in the film including C.J Canby a Pasadena waterman, Ann Swanson, Executive Director of the Chesapeake Bay Commission, and Anson "Tuck" Hines (invited)  Director of the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC). 

Several local environmental groups will set up displays in the back of the room to share information about the good works they are doing in our area.
