The Fine Arts Department is incredibly excited to host our first annual off-campus Spring Visual Arts Showcase on Saturday, May 5 at the Urban Light Studio in Greenwood! This exhibit offers our young artists a chance to display their work in a public setting, to celebrate their achievements in the arts, and to invite the larger community to engage with the work they've created. The event will feature work by Middle and Upper School students in a variety of media, including drawing, painting, photography, mixed media, and sculpture.
The showcase provides a great opportunity for our community to see how our students express themselves through the visual arts in a variety of ways. Visual arts classes at UPrep really emphasize creative thinking and process, and it’s great to see how those processes manifest in some really stunning work. The evening will feature music from some of UPrep’s accomplished musicians, an array of snacks and beverages, and, most importantly, an opportunity to talk to the young artists.
Over the last few years, visual artwork produced by UPrep students has evolved into expressions of multidisciplinary thinking, while also taking on issues of personal identity and social justice. Many of our photography classes approach portraiture as a way of exploring personal narrative. Students in the integrated Visual Art series look at big questions such as “What does it mean to be an American today?” and World Art students look at ways of telling their stories through a different cultural lens. We are proud of the work we do in the visual arts at UPrep, and we are thrilled to share our students’ accomplishments at this spring’s Visual Arts Showcase.
We hope to see you at the Urban Light Studio (8537 Greenwood Ave N, Suite #1) on Saturday, May 5, from 5:30-8:00 p.m.!
