Friday May 10th at 7:00 pm, the NDA Speech and Debate team will host Speech & Sweets–a chance to eat delicious desserts and see what Speech and Debate is all about as our state qualifiers perform! Tickets are 5.00 for students and 10 for adults free for 8th graders!
Every drama group has experienced the horrors of what can go wrong on opening night, and the ladies of the F.A.H.E.T.G. Dramatic Society are no different, with the possible exception that almost everything that could happen does! The scenery collapses, cues are missed, lines forgotten, and the sound effects take on a strange note at times, as the ladies present their ambitious evening’s entertainment with the cunning whodunit, “Murder At Checkmate Manor.” And just in case the audience should get bored there’s a Film and Fashion Show and Murder Mystery Quiz, complete with a Prize! The crunch comes in the denouement when the “murderer”, about to be revealed, has to rush home to bandage up an injured daughter. But Mrs. Reece, doyenne of the group, rises above the slings and arrows of outrageous dramatics to save the situation and provide the final inventive twist.
In May, student auditions are held for the musical in the upcoming fall. In 2019, NDA will perform the classic, Fiddler on the Roof! All NDA students and boys from local high schools are invited to try out. Students who wish to be involved as stage crew, makeup artists, costume designers, orchestra musicians, and ushers can sign up in the fall. A spring play is presented each May. All NDA students and boys from local high schools are welcome to try out. Other students are welcome to sign up as stage crew, makeup artists, costume designers, and ushers. Contact Mrs. Trish Sanders for more information: email@example.com.

Art I freshman and NDJA alum, Georgia Woodruff wrote an award-winning essay for the 2019 Jerry Tollifson Art Criticism Open, sponsored by the Ohio Art Education Association (OAEA). Her art criticism piece on The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Tulp by Rembrandt won 3rd place in the Division 4: (Grades 9-12) category. She will have her essay on display as part of the Youth Art Month display and be honored at the Youth Art Month Awards Recognition Ceremony today in Columbus, Ohio.
Read Georgia’s essay below:
Analysis of Rembrandt’s The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Tulp The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Tulp, a painting done by Rembrandt in 1632, depicts a famous surgeon, Dr. Tulp, demonstrating a surgery to a cluster of seven politicians from that time. He’s showing the muscles in the man’s arm. The man on the table is not alive; he is the corpse of a criminal, being dissected in a teaching manner for the politicians to see. The painting utilizes lighting to emphasize the criminal as well as the men’s faces and collars versus the dull background. It also uses color and line to draw the viewer’s eyes to the exposed muscles of the man’s arm. The men also have vivid faces, expressive and colorful, which sharply contrasts the cold and colorless face of the criminal’s corpse. While the majority of the painting is comprised of duller browns and darker tones of orange, the men have bright faces with pink accents to contrast from their clothes and the background. The criminal has the same base color, except the accents are a less interesting brown, which gives the feeling of cold skin. Each man’s pose reflects a different personality, engaging the viewer in an exciting and lifelike scene.
At the time this piece was created, Dutch artists were often hired to paint group pictures. Most often, these pictures consisted of stiff figures with simple poses and expressions. However, Rembrandt put a creative twist on this by filling the subjects with life and varying their poses and expressions. Rembrandt also gave the painting a dark, cold mood, while also capturing the intrigue of the politicians. Dr. Tulp appears focused on his work, while the politicians are almost childishly interested in the surgery. It’s likely that Rembrandt painted the subjects so contrastingly to give Dr. Tulp an aura of brilliance and to draw the viewer’s attention to him just as the politicians have. This gives the group picture concept a whole new dimension, that in focusing the men on Dr. Tulp, Rembrandt has discovered a new way to place emphasis on a subject in the painting. He also intended to use this emphasis to instill a feeling of superiority into Dr. Tulp, that he has managed to capture the attention of these seven politicians and therefore has control over their perception.
