On May 2nd, Hatboro-Horsham School District held their third annual arts festival featuring artwork from all schools Kindergarten through 12th grade. Each individual school also holds an art show but, the HH art department wanted to also host a community event for all to attend this giant art show.
The art show allows people to see the art curriculum and the progression of artwork from kindergarten to 12th grade.
One of the new additions onto the art show was featuring the tech ed program. The students show cased their woodwork, engineering, and architecture skills. Along with the tech ed program many categories of art were featured including: animation, ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, jewelry, computer graphics, 3D printing and many more!
Advanced placement (AP) students had walls filled with all their hard work. Once in 12th grade students can take AP art and pick a concentration to focus their studies on. Each student gets a wall space to feature all their work and the public is allowed to leave remarks about what they thought of the art. Heather Pasko, HHHS Art Department Chair, said, “It’s a really nice kind of real world type of experience for them to speak to their work and explain it to the public.”
The night was filled with artwork, musical performances and food trucks! Pasko wanted students to take away one important message, “Everything we rely on in life are artist and creators and that’s hopefully what we are inspiring for the future here in our program.”
