 “The Mt. Blue Campus Artist Community”


Opening Reception: 5/16/19


Emery Flex Space

Free and open to the public.

“The Mt. Blue Campus Artist Community” showcases both 2D and 3D visual art by Introductory Art and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, ART and Math) students as well as advanced artists from 2D Art, 3D Art, Ceramics, Advanced Ceramics, Advanced Art and AP Art.  This year’s show also includes the work of Mt. Blue artists from across the curriculum, including work from English Language Arts, Science and Social Studies classes.  In the main gallery advanced visual art department students will exhibit their work along with 3D work from students in a variety of courses.  Through the halls other artists’ work will be included in group displays highlighting a technique, an element or principle of art and design, a theme, a design challenge or content learning targets from other subject areas.  Viewers will experience a wide range of 2D and 3D materials and processes including collage, painting, pastels, mixed media, ceramics, and other sculptural pieces.
In our classes students focus on demonstrating proficiency of the art standards by using the elements of art and principles of design to create unique and interesting compositions.  We also focus on the 8 Studio Habits of Mind (Develop Craft, Engage & Persist, Envision, Express, Observe, Reflect, Stretch & Explore and Understand Art Worlds) to develop mindful art practice and encourage students to take creative risks.  Students especially enjoy choice-based assignments where they can create personally relevant works around a theme or to solve a design challenge.  Choice-based art education supports multiple modes of learning and assessment for the diverse needs of students and increases student engagement.  
This show celebrates the work of our community, including work from all classes throughout the school and all levels of artists.   We are happy to support our colleagues who teach other subject areas as they encourage students to demonstrate their content knowledge through the visual arts and are pleased to include their work in this show.  We hope that everyone will come and celebrate our community of artists!
