The School District of the Chathams will hold its second annual K-12 Art Show on May 21 & May 22 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the Chatham Middle School upper gymnasium.
Artwork from over 800 district students representing grades K-12 will be on display. 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.
Students will be providing live demonstrations, with high school students showcasing pottery wheel techniques, middle school students showing their work with coil basketry and Lafayette students demonstrating a variety of processes including stencil prints, mask making and more!
The opening night reception on May 21st will include light refreshments and music from the CHS pops ensemble, and attendees will be invited to anonymously judge student work for grades 6-12. On the second night of the show, 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 and Lafayette band 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 event one to remember.
