After being selected for published, each selected student had the opportunity to participate in The Marble Collection’s free Mentoring for Publication Workshop, in which teens are paired one-to-one with a college student mentor to develop their 21st-century skills through four steps: create, respond, connect, and present. In the 6-week workshop, teens explore the creative process, edit their work for publication and exhibition, and learn to present their artistic visions to audiences.

High-quality framed prints and canvases of each Burlington High School students work can be purchased on The Marble Collection’s e-Gallery atwww.themarblecollection.org/egallery.

Some comments from our students and the Marble Collection Advisors, include:

Naaz Thotathil’s drawing, “Madeline,” was selected for publication in The Massachusetts High School Magazine of the Arts, the only statewide print and online publication featuring jury-selected artwork, photography, poetry and creative writing by students in grades 8 to 12. Naaz Thotathil is a sophomore at Burlington High School.

“Madeline” was selected from over 700 works submitted by teens from schools and community organizations across the Commonwealth. All published works are juror-selected to ensure artistic excellence. Through this selective process, The Marble Collection, the nonprofit publisher of The Massachusetts High School Magazine of the Arts, strives to assemble the most diverse and acclaimed collection of work.

“In all my drawings, I like to create pieces to show diversity in people,” says Thotathil. “In this world, acceptance of everyone’s different qualities is something that our society is working towards and I feel that expressing that in my artwork is very important.”

“Naaz has such a unique perspective in her artwork. It was amazing to work with her these past several weeks and engage in her creative mindset.” -Jessica Perez, editorial mentor.

BHS Student Jessie James Photograph, “Beating,” was selected for publication in The Massachusetts High School Magazine of the Arts, the only statewide print and online publication featuring jury-selected artwork, photography, poetry and creative writing by students in grades 8 to 12. Jessie James is a Senior at Burlington High School.

Beating was selected from over 700 works submitted by teens from schools and community organizations across the Commonwealth. All published works are juror-selected to ensure artistic excellence. Through this selective process, The Marble Collection, nonprofit publisher of The Massachusetts High School Magazine of the Arts, strives to assemble the most diverse and acclaimed collection of work.

I enjoy incorporating movement into my work because our lives are always moving and changing. Capturing a unique image allows for me to hold onto a memory even with all of the change that occurs around me.

“Jessie has been great to work with. She is a great artist, uniquely adept at communicating the concepts behind her work.” -Jamie Magid (mentor)

This piece of work is a piece of a much larger body of work called Coping in Paint. It focuses on coping mechanisms used by myself as well as others around me in dealing with a parent’s divorce. High-quality framed prints and canvases of “Beating” can be purchased on The Marble Collection’s e-Gallery at www.themarblecollection.org/egallery.
