Students, parents, faculty, and staff gathered at the SBS Pavilion on Thursday, May 12, for the opening reception of the K-12 Spring Art Show, a celebration of the talent and creativity of our students on campus. The showcase featured work by artists in all grades and highlighted a wide range of media. The display included 2D, 3D, and digital art and even included a surprise live demonstration by Sara Rodiguez ’23, who worked on her painting on an easel in front of the pavilion. In the center of the walkway stood a giant wooden hand-created throughout the semester by all levels of Bob Ort’s ’89 woodworking classes and assembled for the art show.
“The project took lots of planning and collaboration,” said Mr. Ort. He admits that he had his vision for the project, but he let the students take the lead in the decision-making. “I am pleased with how it turned out.”
Members of the Clay Club were on hand to sell handmade and hand-painted bowls. Attendees also had the opportunity to purchase handcrafted wooden pens as well prints by the graduating senior class. Proceeds from the sales will benefit a local food pantry.
The K-12 Spring Art Show will remain on display in the SBS Pavilion through the end of the school year.
