The Academy at Metropolitan School of the Arts honored its third graduating class in a celebration at Old Town Hall in Fairfax. The celebration marked the end of the Academy's fifth year and featured performances by the graduates and students who attend the grades 6-12 school. For more photos, go to my Facebook page here.

For the past three years, I have taken concept photos of the graduating seniors at the Academy of Metropolitan School of the Arts, working with the students to develop concepts that combine their interests and talents. This year’s portrait series, taken in the black box theater at MSA’s studio in Alexandria, focused on shadows. I also shot cap and gown photos of the four seniors, who will complete their school work in June.

Kimmel Center — Philadelphia, November 2011
A busy January (thankfully) continued on Sunday night as I took pictures of the Academy students at the Metropolitan School of the Arts performing in a winter showcase for family and community members at the Lorton Workhouse.
The showcase, held as the academy finishes its first academic semester, featured monologues, short scenes from plays, musical theatre performances, a piano solo, and brief dance numbers.
Prior to the showcase, attendees took part in a social hour with members of the MSA faculty, including Cheryl Wilhoyte, the new head of school; department chairs Jackie Doherty (dance), Matthew Bassett (theater), Abbey Smith (music); Michelle Collier, academic dean; and school founder Melissa Dobbs.
