The Roger Bacon Academy wishes you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 

We hope you all have a wonderful and safe break, and we will see you all on January 4th for the start of Quarter 3. 


Art and Religion Over the Ages on Display

Before widespread literacy, art was used to communicate. To spread the word of Christianity, priests decorated churches with large pictures of scenes from the Bible.

One popular scene displayed was “The Adoration of the Shepherds.” Throughout history, many artists have recreated this scene in their distinctive styles and interpretations. In 1609, Italian artist Caravaggio revolutionized art through the adept use of light, shadow, real-life models, and smooth depth transitions.

An exhibit featuring seven different renditions of “The Adoration of the Shepherds,” showing the evolution of art over a 215-year period, is currently on display at the shelter across from Classical Charter Schools of Leland. The free exhibit is sponsored by The Roger Bacon Academy Founder Baker A. Mitchell.
