In the Gallery, “Community” is an exhibition featuring thirty-nine student artists from Bermudian Springs High School, Art Teacher, Kim Robinson. Their collective artist statement, “Individually we are different, but collectively in the art room we are one community. We think, plan, and celebrate growth and encourage one another to persevere through struggles. We make mistakes and figure out how to make them work. We are art students.”
In the Reception Hall, The Choice Based Art Exhibition features work by Littlestown Area SD students and Alloway Creek Elementary students, Art Teachers Jill Rakowicz, and is a show celebrating the art of choice in the art room, or TAB. Choice based art is a method of teaching in which students learn to use art making processes. The results produce well-planned works of art that demonstrate originality, and a unique perspective from each student.
