South Windsor Public School’s art exhibit showcases artwork from students in grades k-12.

On Thursday, April 25th, the South Windsor Public Library held a K-12 Art Exhibition. The exhibition displays students’ clay work, pottery, drawings, and paintings. Everything from self-portraits to crazy-colored paper masks is showcased during this event. 

The Art show is open to everyone, and students are invited to attend the exhibition and are encouraged to bring their families along. Prior to the event, a letter was sent to South Windsor students whose work was selected. This letter contained an invitation to the Exhibition, making families aware their child’s art would be displayed.

The Exhibition will be up and running until May 7th, providing families with ample time to view their children’s art. The library’s upper level, lower level display cases, and lower level gallery showcase art from students ages 5 to 18.

“The K-12 Art Exhibition is a great opportunity to bring students and families together to see the variety of works our students produce in their art programs. It is also exciting to see students’ growth over the years. Some students have had their work in the show since elementary school,¨ South Windsor High School art teacher Ms. Lane, stated. 

Pottery, Jewelry, Metalwork, and Watercolor-filled papers with amazing colorways are available for South Windsor residents to admire during the walkthrough, along with vibrant face masks, and energetic graffiti. Just at a glance, the detail of these pieces is extraordinary. 

¨[My favorite part of the exhibition was] seeing all the different types of artwork they make and their creativity,” junior, Ritika Abburi, told The Prowl.

Students have spent months working on their art, many of the pieces leaving viewers awestruck. Talented high schoolers worked tirelessly on their art during class and their free time, ensuring only their best work would be present at the exhibition. 

¨It means a lot to have all of our programs come together to share this experience with the community. My favorite part is when I am able to be there for the moment when the student is showing their parents their work. It is wonderful to share in the pride of the student’s creativity and hard work,” explained Lane.

This art exhibition allows students to express their creativity and pieces and helps them gain recognition throughout the art community.
