Observed in March, Youth Art Month is dedicated to promoting art and art education in the United States. Schools across the United States participate, often with the involvement of local art galleries, museums and civic organizations.
“ESOTERICA” is a collection of work from high school artists is the Advanced Placement Studio Art at Shippensburg Area Senior High School. Featured artists are Alec Smith, Sara Jansson, Marissa Gardenhour, Allison Caudill, and Jordan Kent. Under the instruction of their teacher Sarah Maclay, the students created a dynamic collection of unique pieces. The talented student artists at SHAPE’s newest exhibition have promising futures in the world of art.
All artists strive for the opportunity to showcase their work. Luckily for these budding artists, this unique opportunity at SHAPE gallery has risen. In addition to filling the community arts gallery with photographs, paintings and multimedia pieces, the students are also responsible for installing the exhibit, organizing and running the opening reception, and arranging gallery sitting during regular operating hours. This all-inclusive approach to learning gallery operations offers the students real-world experience that is essential toward continuing a career in art.
