  • Upper School Artists Learn to Curate

    Students in Susan Brodies Art 1-5 classes learned the 'art' of curating this week. Students were asked to curate the classroom’s collection of art prints. They worked in groups to sort art prints into categories they determined and then they helped select the prints they thought should be displayed in the classroom. They discussed the role of a curator and the issues curators need to be aware of in their selection process, which included representing a wide range of artists, styles and diversity.
  • Senior Show in Blue Room

    Our Tandem seniors have graduated and the campus is without students right now, but we are still enjoying the artwork of three seniors. Maya Tatel-McMillen and Julian Macalister, both students in Lou Haney's Art Capstone class, ended their final semester in art creating surrealistic artworks for the Senior Show in our Main Building's Blue Room. They even wrote artist's statements about their work. Senior Kemp Reisky took the Capstone class first semester, and focused his Senior Project on Wabi Sabi Ceramics, and some of his pieces were included in the show as well. We're so glad we get to enjoy the creations of these talented grads for a little longer. Thanks and good luck, Maya, Julian and Kemp!
