Visual arts faculty members at The John Cooper School are considered “artists-in-residence,” because they are artists who work in a variety of mediums. Jayla Ash Davis, Amy Dietrich, Visual Arts Department Chair Bob Mosier, Jamila Musa-Carr, Lesia Streckfess and Emily Taylor as well as French teacher Jodie Gill, each contributed an original piece of art to a Silent Auction that was held in conjunction with The John Cooper School’s Fine Arts Festival Week in April.

The annual event, sponsored by the school’s Fine Arts Council, is a week-long campus celebration to highlight student work in the visual and performing arts with performances, exhibits and art-related activities.

Proceeds from the Faculty Art Silent Auction benefited Because Art Matters, the community and educational outreach arm of The Woodlands Arts Council. The auction raised $800 to enable more schools and residents in the area to be able to actively engage in the arts through programs provided through The Woodlands Arts Council.

“We believe in the importance of people being able to actively engage in the arts and are pleased to support the education and outreach efforts of this local arts organization,” said Bob Mosier.
