Teens Share Their Voices with the Community at Spring Art Show

Friends, family and neighbors came together to celebrate our Art & Impact students on Friday, May 12 at the Spring Art Show. Everyone who attended took time to browse and take in all of the art on display, socialize and enjoy the refreshments in a conducive and safe environment.

Visitors were encouraged to share their impressions of the art work and add a comment for the artist via post-it note. Others had the chance to talk to the teen artists directly about their work and what inspired them to create what they did. Although faculty was present and supportive, the teens were able to lead the space. Students each had 2-4 pieces of art on display, some that were worked on over the duration of program and others that were single day independent works.

The Old Town Portrait Project was also on display and drew interest from both the students and the visitors. If you would like to learn more about the project or submit your portrait to be painted, visit http://www.artonsedgwick.org/blog/old-town-portrait-project/.
