Sixth-grade artwork shown at A.R.T.S. Gallery

An estimated crowd of 75–including parents, teachers, and supporters of our school–attended the annual spring exhibition featuring photography and mixed-media artwork from our talented sixth graders on May 22nd at the A.R.T.S. Gallery at Liberty Station in Point Loma.

Each year, with the generous support of a grant from our Parent Committee, we partner with Outside the Lens (a local non-profit for arts and literacy education in schools) to bring a unique curriculum to the sixth-grade classroom. Under the guidance of a team of talented artists and teachers from Outside the Lens, our sixth graders learn the art of photography and mixed media and combine their work with written pieces.

And each spring, near the end of the semester, the impressive artwork that our sixth graders produce is shown publicly at the A.R.T.S. Gallery.  If you were unable to attend the exhibit, please visit the website to view this most recent artwork and the artwork from our talented seventh and eighth graders this year and in previous years.
