End of 2016-17 School Year Art Show

End of year self portraits

St. Gabriel Episcopal School presented an end-of-school-year  show on Friday, June 16th 2017, displaying art pieces we created through our art enrichment program. All students from our preschool and prekindergarten programs were be represented. Artwork included three-dimensional animal sculptures, architectural structures in habitats, hand-colored photographs, self-portraits, mixed media pieces, and cloth dolls. Hand-drawn peace flags were displayed in the church worship space. Each artist also had an “artist’s choice” piece where they chose their favorite art piece to exhibit. What these students created was amazing, funny and surprising.

The students also helped made two mosaic tables and a photography quilt that were part of a silent auction to benefit the school.

Our program for 2017-18 will include art enrichment all year long that will explore many different types of art media and techniques leading to major projects such as the paper Mache animal sculptures and architectural models in landscape displayed here. Supporting and encouraging art in the classroom shows how important art is to a Reggio Emilia-influenced
