Details from DSA:
During the month of May, the visual arts department has had guest artists come in every Wednesday to do an artists workshop with students in Mr. Wood and Mrs. Braxton’s visual arts classes. The interactive, engaging workshops have highlighted various forms of the arts and issues relevant to the community. Not only have the presentations allowed the artist to present unique artwork, but the students also have had opportunity to create through hands-on workshops. Issues addressed through the workshops have included: bullying, alter egos, the environment, and social justice, among other topics.
An exhibition with the pieces from the artists’ collection is set up in the DSA 5th Floor Gallery, installed by the visual arts instructor and DSA students. Students will also be featured at the reception, as the work they created as part of the workshops will be on available for viewing.
The closing reception will take place on Wednesday May 29 from 5-6:30 and will feature music, art, food and engagement with DSA visual arts students, 555 Gallery artists, and the school community.
Please come out to participate in this wonderful event.
