Like many artists before her, Lisa Su has found inspiration from the intricate patterns and textures found in nature: the red seeds from the inside of a pomegranate, barnacles adhering to a rock. Yet the materials she uses are not beautiful or intricate. They are the stuff we throw away: old newspapers, egg shells, plastic bags, pencil shavings and light bulbs. Su's work, which ranges from the realistic bust of her friend to the abstract paper pulp sculpture that is reminiscent of barnacles, has earned her recognition as one of the top high school visual artists in the nation.

Former teachers and students from Towsontown Junior High School are taking a mournful stroll down memory lane, as the destruction of the school's building on York Road continues. "Towsontown was unlike any other school I have ever seen," said Mike DeVita , of Glendale, who taught English and drama at the school for eight years when it opened in 1958. "Everyone loved it. The faculty was totally dedicated, and they enjoyed being with each other. There was an amazing creative energy provided by the staff and students.

Walking the halls at the Carver Center for Arts and Technology, Principal Joseph Freed stops every few feet to point out a drawing or painting and list the honors its artist has won. There is the sketch, meticulously detailed, of the school boiler room, and there is the painting of a woman in a bathtub. The artists were both national award winners. The Towson magnet high school has long been viewed as an artistic powerhouse. Yesterday, that reputation was solidified with the announcement that seven of 25 finalists in a national visual arts competition are Carver students -- a feat that competition organizers said is unprecedented.

"I know that it's muggy and you're tired, because your energy shows it," director Ken Skrzesz tells the group of children. "But you've got to focus." The children are enrolled in the Musical Theater Summer Intensive 2000 camp in Towson, and Skrzesz is rehearsing them for the two performances today that mark the finale of the two-week camp. The shows, at the Carver Center for Arts and Technology, are sold out. When Skrzesz talks about musicals, people listen. He has performed more than 20 roles in musical theater and directed or choreographed more than 40 musicals and operas.

Sixteen-year-old Eleanor Weir held her right leg out in front of her, arched that foot and brought her toes delicately down to the floor, then back up again. She was pretending that the floor was a cat, and she was trying to pet it with her foot. "Yup, bup, bup, bup" guest teacher Gerard Charles said, counting out the beat at Towson's Carver Center for Arts & Technology. Eleanor and 27 other cat petters in training were taking an intermediate-level ballet class with Charles, the ballet master for the Joffrey Ballet.

The domestic drama unfolding on the stage of Everyman Theatre these days in Michael Weller's "Fifty Words" can get pretty messy — stories about marriage frequently are. But the set that the two actors in this play get to inhabit is a study in calm, careful planning and execution. That set is the work of Tim Mackabee, who is making his local professional debut as scenic designer with this production. It's a particularly satisfying homecoming for the New York-based Mackabee, who was born in Baltimore, raised in Perry Hall and attended the Carver Center for Arts and Technology, the magnet high school in Towson.

Kudos to elected officials and the Stoneleigh community for deciding to make the "180-day field trip" move to the Carver Center for the Arts and Technology. This plan begs the question — why are we spending taxpayer dollars to update and expand the already overcrowded, antiquated Stoneleigh Elementary School? If Carver solves the problem and can accommodate more students, shouldn't Baltimore County taxpayers keep Stoneleigh students at this new location … permanently? Who knows what the total cost is to taxpayers for not only the Stoneleigh addition, but also the relocation of students back to this facility?

A story in the Arts section on June 22 implied that the Surge dance company, now at the Carver Center for Arts and Technology in Towson, replaced a company called Kinetics. However, while Kinetics has suspended operations as a performance troupe, it still offers dance classes at the Howard County Arts Center in Ellicott City.The article also characterized the Ballet Theater of Annapolis as the only professional ballet company in Maryland. The National Ballet, based in Bowie, pays its soloists a stipend and can be regarded as professional.

Regarding the proposal to build a new elementary school in either Mays Chapel or Dulaney Springs, I believe there is a better solution to the York Road corridor overcrowding issue then building a school in either of the proposed locations. The solution should be the soon-to-be-vacant Carver Center for the Arts and Technology in Towson. In the near term, it will be used to house the Stoneleigh students while their facility undergoes an addition and refurbishment. But after that, Carver can be refurbished — and an addition added, if required —then become the new Towson East Elementary School.
