The High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA) will host its first annual Visual Arts Middle School Workshops on Saturday, November 4, and Saturday, December 2.

Students in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades from across the Greater Houston area are welcome to attend the workshops, taught by current HSPVA Visual Arts students.

The workshops are designed to strengthen students’ creativity in a collaborative environment. The classes offered are Figure Drawing (with a clothed model), Modular Form/Installation Experience, Automatism, and Bodies in Space.

Each workshop offers a session on giving constructive criticism, a special screening of HSPVA students’ digital work, a pizza lunch and a special edition HSPVA Visual Arts t-shirt.

District provided services such as safety patrols by off-duty HPD officers, graffiti abatement, trash pick-up, maintenance of esplanades, among other services outlined in the Districts’ Assessment Plan, that are supplemental to services provided by the City of Houston, had been reduced in Mid-November and ceased completely as of December 11. The District had to cease the services due to unpaid assessments from some of the commercial property owners within the District. Delinquent assessments for 2016 and prior years are being collected for services that were delivered in 2017. The current lawsuit status does not affect the collection of delinquent assessments due for 2016 and prior years for services rendered for calendar year 2017. Please direct questions regarding the cessation of services to Executive Director, Ben Brewer at BBrewer@MontroseDistrict.org. We are committed to helping our neighborhood remain the safe, vibrant and attractive place to live and do business and would like to hear from you on how we can continue to work together in this effort.
