We are pleased to announce that the 2014 Colchester School District Annual Art Show will begin Tuesday, April 15 and run through Friday, April 18 in the Colchester High School gymnasium from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day.
And on the evening of Thursday, April 17, we invite the community to join us at CHS for the Artist Reception event from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The reception is for students, family members, and the community, and it provides an opportunity for the artists to discuss their work. Refreshments will be served.
(Please note that the show is approximately three weeks earlier than usual this year because of the construction schedule for CHS’s revitalized science labs and classrooms.)
The CSD Art Show features works of art from every grade level in the district. More than 500 works of art are expected to be showcased by Colchester High School students alone, covering Art 1 and 2-D Art, Photography (film and digital), Pottery 1 and 2, and 3-D Art. In addition, all CHS art students will write an artist statement reflecting upon their work and the creative process, which not only hones their writing skills but also helps the viewers to understand the specialized artistic techniques the students learned through the art program.
For more information about the art show, please e-mail CHS art teacher Anne Cummings or call (802) 264-5700. Please join us for this free community event!
When we’re all informed, we make a stronger community! Please encourage your friends and family to subscribe to the Spotlight.
