Students Display Art for the Community
Santa Fe, N. Mex. » On Wednesday, May 10, 2017, the Adventist Academy of Santa Fe had its very first art show at ARTSmart New Mexico. We were able to rent out a professional art gallery to display the students’ art. Parents and members of the community were excited to witness this rare opportunity. The upper grades, grades 5-9, featured art inspired by Gustav Klimt, Andy Warhol, Vincent Van Gogh, and various modern artists. The lower grades, grades K-4, featured their original ideas using tempura paint on canvases and a tree made with leaves they made with tissue paper. The leaves were done to impersonate children’s author Eric Carle’s style of art. The students worked hard to be able to participate in their art show.
It was great to see the parents’ and students’ faces light up as they saw the space. The students were bustling with excitement and the parents, along with the teachers, were proud. Miss Hernandez, the lower grade teacher, and Melissa Chacon, head teacher, were pleased with the number of people that showed up to support our young people.
