High School Art Show
An art show is an incredible way to show the community and your students just how valuable and important the arts are. It also gives students another reason to be proud of the work they’ve accomplished. Here I am this year at the art show for the Benjamin N. Cardozo High School in Queens New York. My students have worked so hard on the pieces they’ve created throughout the year and their art has truly astounded me!
I just wanted to take this opportunity to showcase some of the work that was done and give you a glimpse at the dedication that went into making this art show a success!
This was actually the first art show our school has ever had, can you believe that? Art has always been important to the staff here, they have some incredible paintings hung in the halls by former students. Now, we are introducing an art show where we can show off a little bit of everything that all of our art teachers and their students are producing through the course of the year. The theme for our art show was “Inspired by Nature” so we tried to incorporate the idea of nature with the projects we presented to our students. It all turned out so much better than we expected!
We also conducted two paint-a-long classes for our visitors and students, everyone had a blast making their own creations. We showed our guests some special techniques and just let them go to town! I highly suggest that you consider adding a little activity to your art show, it creates a nice atmosphere and then everyone leaves with a takeaway at the end.
I’m already thinking about how we can make the art show even better next year. Check out the gallery below to see more of the artwork and the fun time we had painting!
