Pieces span a wide variety of media including painting, drawing, papier mache, plaster, ceramics, jewelry, collage, metal works, printmaking, computer graphics and mixed media. In addition, each of the district Art Educators will be represented with one of their favorite original pieces of artwork, demonstrating the talents of the staff.

On the second night of the show, June 1st, there will be a “Best in Show” award presented to two students in each upper grade level, one for a two-dimensional composition, and one for a three-dimensional work. On night two, attendees will enjoy music from the CMS pops orchestra as they view student artwork.

SDOC Art teachers Kenji Hasegawa, Claudia Hauser, Janet Kraemer, Katrina Keeshen, Tracy Kovacsofsky, Candace Hull, Eric Hreha, and Kiera Spadaro have been saving student work since September, and have been working to make the first annual event one to remember.

Last fall, the Chatham Education Foundation generously granted the teachers with forty professional display panels to help make this event possible. 

The public is welcome, and admission is free.
