Recognizing the importance of creative expression through visual arts, this school year, Clovis Municipal Schools has made great strides in expanded opportunities for our elementary students to explore and create art. Elementary parents were asked to complete a survey in the spring of , to assist the district in evaluating and improving our art offerings.
While parents expressed a high level of satisfaction with existing programs, particularly music and performing arts, they wanted to see more growth and activity in the visual arts.
In response, the Instruction Department and district Fine Arts Committee evaluated available funding for the arts and were able to allocate resources to ensure all kindergarten through fifth grade students receive time dedicated to the visual arts. This was accomplished by dedicating a team of three teachers, specializing in the visual arts, to rotate through each elementary school during the school year.
By adding staff exclusively for the purpose of elementary visual arts instruction, our district has been able to not only increase the amount, but also the quality of art instruction. To showcase the work being done by our elementary students under the tutelage of our visual arts team, the district has installed a display case in the lobby of the Clovis Municipal Schools Administration Office, located at Main Street.
Rotating monthly, the display features examples of the outstanding artwork created by kindergarten through fifth grade students around the district.

Well done Sabrina, way to stand out! Love is a bitch! Director Richard Linklater created a trilogy of talkative, insightful films about the lives of two individuals who happened to meet and were together for almost two decades 18 years. Their realistic romance and extended conversations began in Before Sunrise set in Vienna where the two 20 year-olds met on a train and continued nine years later in Before Sunset set in Paris. Their relationship was further extended with them nine years later in Before Midnight , with twin daughters Ella and Nina Jennifer and Charlotte Prior.
They were now probing their commitment and parenthood over a single afternoon and evening. The unmarried couple had been living in the countryside of Greece for six-weeks in the summer, at the invitation of Jesse's writer-colleague Patrick Walter Lassally.
Jesse also had a 14 year-old teenaged son named Hank Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick who lived in Chicago with Jesse's now ex-wife. A gift from a couple Panos Koronis and Rachel Tsangari in their guest house offered them a night away from the twins in a local hotel suite. There, the couple teased each other, became flirtatious and intimate, and were caught up in a more serious conversation about their complex relationship involving their careers, gender roles, children, etc.
One of their challenges in the last scene in the seaside hotel room was whether they should move to Chicago to bring Jesse closer to his son, although Celine had been offered an exciting new job in Paris where they lived. Blue is the Warmest Color , Fr. The film's screenplay was based on the graphic novel by Julie Maroh - it was an intense portrayal of first love and sexual awakening.
Both of them became animalistic and feral as they contorted themselves into many positions, to kiss each other in an oral '69' position. Eventually, the two had a falling out over other lovers, and they split apart but remain cordial. It was weird to have a fake mold of your pussy and then put it over your real one. We spent 10 days on just that one scene. Blurred Lines Music Video. She was joined by blonde Elle Evans and pony-tailed Jessi M'Bengue hair in a ponytail - all wearing skimpy sport thong underwear - and topless.
Director Paul Schrader's soft-porn erotic thriller The Canyons promised to be a scandalous tale of sex, lies, cheating, film-making, mind-games, and murder. It was rated NC for explicit nudity and sex, including one contractually obligated, four-way sex scene , although the soft-core sex was basically topless for women and full-frontal for men. It continued to be a low-grossing offering via VOD and iTunes.
The lethargic, dull, pretentious and lengthy film was made and viewed during a time when controversial 27 year-old former child film star Lindsay Lohan was undergoing numerous court appearances and stints of rehabilitation for drug use. Her co-star was real-life porn star James Deen in his mainstream film debut , a well-endowed performer in thousands of adult videos.
In the modern-day noirish story, manipulative, sex-addicted sociopathic wannabe movie producer Christian Deen degraded his economically-dependent live-in plaything - his actress girlfriend Tara Lohan. He continually brought both male and female sex partners acquired online for her to his Malibu mansion for sexcapades he often sat back, watched, and masturbated.
Their encounters were turned into homemade porno films, shot on Christian's phone. Before the four-way sex scene, adult film actress Lily Labeau as "Young Hot Girl" joined full-frontal Christian as they proceeded upstairs to the bedroom to join Tara - for some lesbian kissing and unexpected male-male oral sex.
The scene was shot in the dark, with laser lights projected on the foursome. When Christian, who was also trysting with Cynthia Tenille Houston , a voluptuous yoga instructor, he became jealously aware of Tara's infidelity and their relationship - a deadly love-triangle, he let her go in exchange for a lethal favor. It told of a camping excursion taken by the two main characters in Chile, to find an elusive hallucinogen dubbed San Pedro, a cactus which could be cooked to produce the same effects as mescaline: Drunk at a party, Jamie inadvertently invited Crystal to join him and his three Chilean companions - his roommate and his two brothers Agustin, Juan and Jose Silva - director Sebastian Silva's siblings.
During the film's journey, the two revealed their flaws, personalities and imperfections within the group's dynamics. Jamie dubbed Crystal the "Hairy Fairy" during the scene of her post-shower casual full-frontal nudity in a hotel room, when she defied convention and paraded around.
She also cavorted around naked while rock-climbing in the desert and at a beach. Graphic footage was cut from the original NC version of the film, allowing it to be released with an R-rating. After an opening montage, a disembodied finger pushed the power button on a laptop and exclaimed in voice-over , as the machine chimed: This sound - gets me hard as a f--kin' rock.
But I don't like to go too fast right off the bat. Yeah, I'd rather work my way into it, nice and easy. So I start off with some stills. Then, once I'm gettin' into it, I start lookin' for a video. I never actually touch my cock til I find the right clip. Then, once I do, goodbye. For the next few minutes, all the bulls--t fades away and the only thing in the world is those tits, dat ass, the blowjob I don't gotta say anything, I don't gotta do anything.
I just f--kin' lose myself. There's only a few things I really care about in life. I know, the last one sounds weird, but I'm just bein' honest. Nothin' else does it for me the same way, not even real pussy. For much of the film, compulsive ladies' man Jon Martello Gordon-Leavitt , a porn-addicted Catholic, working-class bartender from New Jersey, extolled chronic masturbatory pleasure and porn seen as more gratifying than real sex , while challenged and having difficulty with real relationships.
After spying gorgeous blonde Barbara Sugarman Scarlett Johansson at a pick-up bar, the traditional-minded female was unattainable not just a one-night stand , unlike most of the fast women he knew.
As they got to know each other, she began to create an agenda for him - to move ahead from his Italian-American working class roots by improving himself with classes, break away once and for all from his sex addiction, and also be more satisfying to her and sensitive to her needs.
Ultimately, he found fulfillment with recently-widowed, middle-aged, eccentric Esther Julianne Moore , his truth-seeking sex mentor. The off-the-wall, mercenary pimp idea was overheard by Murray when listening to attractive dermatologist Dr.
Parker Sharon Stone , a bored hedonistic rich wife who wondered aloud about having a threesome menage a trois with her curvy best friend Selima Sofia Vergara , and an experienced male prostitute - for cash. In the central scene, Dr. Parker invited gigolo Fioravante to her plush New York apartment, where they at first planned to have sex without Selima - she admitted: Parker commented on the awkward situation over drinks: During sex from behind, she swore repeatedly at her husband: They split the money: When curvaceous Selima heard Dr.
Parker's recounting of her gigolo's "silky" skin, and comparison to pistachio ice cream, she proposed having a menage a trois. Finally, Parker was ready to add another person. During the act, she wondered: Meanwhile, Murray brought together Fioravante and fragile and repressed widow Avigal Vanessa Paradis , whose orthodox Hasidic rabbi husband was recently deceased, leaving her with six children.
Fioravante did not press to have sex with her, although administered an oil massage on her back. Feelings grew and intensified between Avigal and Fioravante, although they were from different cultural worlds, causing the gigolo encounters to be more difficult. It was about a haunted house in New Orleans, bought as a fixer-upper by an expectant Caucasian married couple: Their intention was to quickly flip it and make a profit.
It was nicknamed by the locals as "House of Blood" La Maison de Sang , and had a long, well-known, and horrifying history of bloody encounters. Also, the characters included two dim-witted, bumbling cops who showed up: One of the film's stars, Wiccan-believing priestess, hippy-dippy sister-in-law Riki Lindhome as Marjorie , Vanessa's sister, chose to go gratuitously full frontal in a lengthy, 5-minute bathroom bathroom scene.
When Jack threw open the shower curtain as he invited himself in, thinking it was his wife "I hope there's some hot water left over for ze little monsieur" he startled Marjorie in the shower. That's religion for you You have a pretty nice dick, Jack. Just because you're married to my sister, it doesn't mean you own her. As he massaged her back, she admitted: She then volunteered to oil up Jack's back: It's just people," causing him to have an obvious erection.
After he was embarrassed and called their situation "wildly inappropriate," she tried to assure him: If anything, I think it should be totally celebrated.
That's what a maypole symbolizes, of course. In the over-the-top finale after the birth of twin boys borrowing from Basket Case in the couple's bedroom, Jack electrocuted the demonic baby and it succumbed in a fiery explosion.
Spike Jonze's excellent and provocative drama-romance with science-fiction elements told about the life of kind-hearted, introverted romantic Theodore Twombly Joaquin Phoenix , whose work consisted of ghost-writing love letters for a company called BeautifulHandwrittenLetters. The bereft and isolated man, with glasses and a mustache, faced a major dilemma - he was in the midst of a divorce from his wife Catherine Rooney Mara. He bought the world's first artificially-intelligent operating system OS1 created and individualized by Element Software advertised as being human-like: It had a throaty and seductive female voice, and quickly named itself Samantha voiced by Scarlett Johansson.
Basically, in every moment, I'm evolving. As their talking relationship developed and she began to evolve, she expressed her reservations about her feelings: Or are they just programming? That idea really hurts. And then I get angry at myself for even having pain. And then, about a third of the way into the film, Theodore made 'love' to his evolving operating system for the first time, in a short sequence.
The flirtatious cyber-phone sex started off while he was lying on his back in his darkened bedroom at night. He dictated that he wanted to touch her: How would you touch me? I'd touch you on your face, just the tips of my fingers. I'd put my cheek to your cheek. Would you kiss me? I'd take your head into my hands. I'd kiss the corner of your mouth - so softly.
I'd kiss your breasts. What are you doing to me? I can feel my skin. I'd put my mouth on you. I can feel you come.
Oh my God, I can't take it. I want you inside me. And slowly I put myself into you, I'm inside you, all the way inside you. I can feel you. The screen faded to black - - for his masturbatory experience - and a mutual climax. The next morning, she confided: It feels like something changed in me and there's no turning back. You woke me up. I wanna eat it all up.
I wanna discover myself You helped me discover my ability to want. She would have long and sometimes strange conversations with Theodore. As he was surrounded by people on a beach, they talked about how humans' anatomical parts could be changed around. What if one's butt-hole was in one's armpit? Samantha drew a picture for him of what "anal sex" would then look like.
He also told his friends on a picnic's 'double-date' what he liked about her or it: I guess what I love most about her, she isn't just one thing. She's so much larger than that. I used to be so worried about not having a body but now I-I truly love it. You know, I'm growing in a way that I couldn't have if I had a physical form.
I mean, I'm not limited. I can be anywhere and everywhere simultaneously. I'm not tethered to time and space in a way that I would be if I was stuck in a body that's inevitably gonna die. He was the well-known, charismatic historic figure, a revolutionary freedom fighter who led the successful and epic drive for independence for a number of South American countries from tyrannical Spain. The film opened with the title card: He rode over 70, miles on horseback.
His military campaigns covered twice the territory of Alexander the Great. His army never conquered. The two hour long film, a large-scale stylish production, had a limited release in the US in late - it featured a great score and beautiful cinematography.
He had only a short amount of time with her before her untimely death from illness. The film postulated Bolivar's assassination, although he died from tuberculosis. Director Michael Winterbottom's biopic was a comedy-drama about the life of controversial Paul Raymond, a wealthy entrepreneur and erotica magnate in Britain England's Swingin' 60's answer to US playboy Hugh Hefner. It was a retro-sleazy rise and fall tale, partly in flashback, about the self-obsessed, philandering protagonist portrayed by Steve Coogan.
Raymond eventually became exceedingly rich, with dozens of properties in Soho, and several entertainment businesses, including London's first official strip club Raymond Revue Bar in with racy, burlesque-style dance routines, and the erotic Men Only smut magazine.
He expanded his empire with more clubs, real estate holdings and a variety of nudie magazines that pushed the boundaries of sexual obscenity and permissiveness in England. His long-suffering wife Jean Anna Friel accepted their open marriage but eventually broke away from him, when his amoral infidelities reached a climax with pretty long-legged redhead Amber St.
George British TV actress Tamsin Egerton , an aspiring actress who first met Raymond when she performed solely for him a memorable naked audition by swimming in a tank. She took a role in his new controversial sex comedy-play Pyjama Tops , smartly advertised as having "Arbitrary Displays of Naked Flesh. After Raymond divorced his wife Jean, his love partner Amber was eventually reborn as UK's first glamour icon, sex reporter Fiona Richmond - in his adults-only magazine Men Only.
During one later photoshoot with another busty model, the full-frontal pubic shots were becoming more obvious, required and plentiful. In one of the film's many other nude scenes, Amber had a foursome sex scene - a coke-driven quartet of sexual debauchery with two other naked females and Raymond. The film dramatized many of Raymond's overt and covert affairs, hedonistic luxury, wealth and power, and his obsession with sex, booze and drugs a heroin overdose led to the tragic death of his own daughter Debbie Imogen Potts.
Screenwriter Andy Bellin's adaptation of Lovelace's book "Ordeal," directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman their second dramatic feature , told about the infamous porn actress Linda Lovelace turned anti-porn crusader in a little over 90 minutes. The whitewashed biopic shot in grainy 16 mm portrayed aspects of Linda Lovelace's nee Linda Susan Boreman life from two different perspectives or time-shifts: A polygraph verified the facts of her confessional memoirs that she was exploited, degraded, and coerced, although many disavowed her claims that she performed sex-on-camera at gunpoint.
Although she became a spokesperson for anti-pornography crusades, some accused her of suffering from "Linda Syndrome" - porn stars who sought acceptance from society by disavowing their pasts.
In real life, Lovelace suffered from hepatitis C from a blood transfusion , starred in a "looped" stag film about bestiality Dogarama , was addicted to pain killers and marijuana, had a liver transplant and a double radical mastectomy - the result of illegal silicone injections she received in She also gave birth to an illegitimate child at the age of 19 the child was adopted.
Growing up in suburban Miami as a prudish, sexually-conservative young girl, she was discovered poolside in a bikini by "titty bar" owner Traynor - who soon married her. Linda's pimping husband in the late s and early 70s, who allegedly forced her into prostitution, procured the starring role for her in the first scripted porno film Deep Throat - an X-rated film about a fellatio-loving female with her clitoris in the back of her throat.
The movie marked a turning point in commercial erotica whereby the focus of sexual pleasure for women became the focus. This R-rated account of Lovelace's life was much more talkative about sex than showing anything on-screen although she was topless during a photoshoot sequence, during an underwater swimming sequence, and in a scene of wedding night lovemaking.
Small edits were made to only one sex scene in which Traynor taught Linda how to perform oral sex to avoid an NC rating. Director Anthony DiBlasi's R-rated psychological horror thriller has been compared to Fatal Attraction , with its tale of obsessive, unrequited love. It was the story of struggling, confused single mother Katherine Kingsmen Dawn Olivieri , working at a car repair lot. She had recently separated from husband Ian Kip Pardue , and was raising her young son Kelsey Connor Christie , after moving back to the small town where she grew up in Florida.
The tale really began when one afternoon, two Mormon missionaries or Elders with bicycles and wearing short sleeved white shirts arrived in her front yard, to talk about Jesus: Brock befriended Katherine's young son with football-catch, and after a few more chance flirtatious meetings, Katherine and Brock became sexual.
In the conclusion, when she began to patch things up with her husband Ian, Elder Kevin couldn't accept the change in their relationship, and became an obsessed and crazed suitor-stalker. He claimed he had taken care of "punished" her husband "taught the scumbag a lesson" for sexually-extorting his patients and cheating on her, and ultimately beheaded Ian and delivered his bloody head in a black garbage bag to Katherine.
He said that he had removed the one obstacle to them being "a celestial family. In the final harrowing sequence, Elder Kevin proclaimed and threatened - with a shotgun in his hand - "If we can't be together in this life, then we'll be together side by side in celestial glory.
This anthology film, a sketch-comedy movie co-directed and produced by Peter Farrelly, was composed of over a dozen different segments, each made by a different film-maker over a four year period. The R-rated film with a star-studded ensemble cast was widely criticized for its puerile humor and poor taste, and was considered one of the worst films of the year.
It received six Razzie Awards nominations: All of the segments were framed by the story of washed-up, twitchy screenwriter Charlie Wessler Dennis Quaid and his pitching of comedy-sketch ideas to studio executive-producer Griffin Schraeder Greg Kinnear as full-fledged movies. One segment of interest, the centerpiece of the film, was directed by Steven Brill, titled iBabe.
The product was advertised as: However, the company headed by Richard Gere was facing major problems -- boys were trying to have sex with it, but ended up castrated or injured by a super-powerful micro-fan placed in the position of the woman's vagina. A new warning label was devised, and an advertising slogan was added: The film also began with a prologue: During the last 30 years the F. It has also produced the greatest number of known serial killers. My name is Abigail Russell. I look like a slut.
But don't be fooled. This is merely a disguise to lure the dangerous predators who walk among us. This is their jungle. And tonight I'm on the hunt. These are the cheaters, the married lying scum. They are like diseased cells, cultured in alcoholic petri dishes, but destroy unsuspecting families, and infect millions of innocent vaginas. There is not cure for the married cock. Only me, the Nurse. In the first sequence set in a nightclub, she seduced a married family man with children, took him to the rooftop, fondled his genitals as she asked: Don't be such a pussy, Fred" , and watched him bleed to death.
She matter-of-factly told him: At the rate you're bleeding, you'll be dead in a few minutes. And your wife and those two beautiful girls, they won't be scarred by a cheating sack of s--t like yourself. Pay close attention now, you have a couple of choices: Or you can take the fast lane down. Her serial killing transformed into obsessing and stalking new fellow co-worker, pretty blonde Danni Rodgers Katrina Bowden , who she was mentoring, and unfortunately for her had a paramedic boyfriend named Steve Corbin Bleu.
Abby's objective to have a lesbian love affair with Danni, by drugging her drink and having sex with her in her apartment, was met with disinterest "We'll just pretend last night never happened". Things became more complicated when new HR hospital employee, Rachel Owens Melanie Scrofano , suspected that Abby resembled a murderous young girl Sarah Price who was sent to a mental institution with severe father issues. The scorned Abby skyrocketed into a more brutal psychopath, dismembering and murdering those who were suspicious of her.
Director Spike Lee's dramatic thriller was an unnecessary Hollywood remake of the original Oldboy , S. It turned out to be a financial failure and major box-office bomb. In this familiar redo, Josh Brolin starred as alcoholic advertising-marketing executive Joe Doucett, who found himself kidnapped and imprisoned in solitary confinement for twenty years in a hotel room - for no apparent reason.
At the time, he had an estranged ex-wife named Donna and a three year-old daughter named Mia. Through the TV show Unsolved Mysteries of Crime , he learned that his wife had been brutally raped and murdered and he was the prime suspect , and that his daughter had been adopted.
Once he was released from captivity, he went on a vengeful rampage to discover the reason for his unlawful and improper arrest. He met Marie Sebastian Elizabeth Olsen, the younger sister of the famous Olsen Twins Mary-Kate and Ashley , a pretty clinic care-nurse social worker who attempted to help him in his quest to track down those who framed him.
In the film's culminating plot-twist, Joe discovered that the news reports he had seen while imprisoned were staged, and that Mia had been raised by her mother instead of neglectful foster parents - and she grew up to be Marie.
Joe became completely unhinged and sickened: Hurt me, hurt me! This is why I let you go. So that I could experience this moment with you. So that you could truly understand what I had and what you took from me. Adrian pulled out a gun Heaven make me free of it.
The rest is silence. The film ended with Joe's voice-over of a letter sent to Marie, stating that he would never see her again. She received the letter, a stash of diamonds and a small Buddha toy, while Joe was returned to captivity:
