An exhibit on display through March 29 at the Montgomery Museum of Art and History features work by Auburn Middle School students.
The artwork displayed at the museum features works from students in grades 6-8. The classes they are taking range from exploratory art and 2-D/3-D design to advanced art classes. While most works were created during art class, some of the art was created entirely outside of school by the school’s ambitious artists.
The exhibit consists of self portraits, self-reflective landscapes, exploration in perspective, scratch art and many other pieces created throughout the year.
This is the first time students from Auburn Middle School have had the honor to display their work at the museum. Although many of the showcased students have had their art displayed at shows, the ability to be presented in such a professional setting is a new and exciting opportunity for them. In a year of uncertainties, this show has been a huge uplift, encouraging many students to create more work outside of class than in previous years.
Further information about the exhibit and the students’ works is available by calling the museum.
