The Milton district-wide art show begins tomorrow and the Daily Item got a sneak peek today at the set-up.
There’s tons of different art pieces and mediums represented at the show, which features work from kindergarteners all the way up to some very talented high school students. Some of this art is so good, I would pay for it if it was sold in stores.
The show is free and open to the public. Read more at dailyitem.com.
Here’s some of my top picks:
Masks made by 8th graders. I don’t think I could make something that good and I’m twice their age.
Yesterday, I visited Midd-West High School to talk about raising money to bring in an artist in residence.
Budget cuts have cut funding for the program.
They’ve had an artist-in-residence come to the school during the past two years, and created some cool projects – like these low-relief sculptures which hang in the school’s lobby:
They’re made from several different materials, including old books. Very neat.
On the way back from the interview, we were thinking about other art projects that could be in schools that wouldn’t cost too much. Statutes are expensive, but maybe one that the students create using recycled materials?
What do you think? How would you decorate a school?
