On March 19, the OLSH Visual Art Department showcased the creativity of its students in the first-ever AP Studio Art Virtual Art Show.
Ten talented junior and senior art students showcased their creations throughout the Tisch Family Library. Each student-artist used unique mediums such as crocheted yarn, recycled materials, photography, colored pencil, and acrylic paint.
As with most events this year, the art show took on a hybrid platform as each artist was live via Zoom on a laptop positioned next to their work. Visitors were encouraged to talk to the students about their inspiration for the pieces, use of materials, creation process, and their favorite artists.
AP Studio Art is a college-level course developed for students who are highly motivated and have a serious interest in developing skills in the areas of composition, problem solving, and artistic execution.
Over the course of the year, students are challenged to create 20- 24 high quality, engaging, and original artworks. In doing so, the young artists learn the importance of portraying ideas and themes through imagery. The students had the opportunity to express these stories and meanings by sharing their work with the OLSH community.
The art show welcomed many students throughout the day and even allowed for parents and visitors to take part in the show as well.
