Art instruction is interwoven throughout the Shorecrest curriculum. To celebrate the lessons and skills taught all year, we open the campus to the community each spring during Celebrate the Arts Week
This year, while our students are quarantined, artists visited through webinars and videos. Community members with careers in animation, writing, painting, sculpture, dance, floral design and more shared their talents and create experiential opportunities for Shorecrest students. Read more about those visits for Middle School grades here
Middle Schoolers also had a recycled art challenge
and created Earth Day- themed art
Lower School students had guest artists on a designated Celebrate the Arts Day. The day began with an opening session for everyone and then offered two arts-education videos (made by local artists) appropriate for their grade level. There were also virtual museum tours and related read alouds shared.
Student artwork is typically on display around campus during Celebrate the Arts week, with a juried art show for grades 5-8 around Middle School and for grades 9-12 in the Student Activity Center and Janet Root Theatre Lobby. For 2020, art galleries are shared online, below:
