Public invited to view art

June 20, 2016

Students from four NISD middle schools are exhibiting art work they created during the two-week Summer Visual Arts Camp. The exhibit will be held on Thursday, June 23 from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Stevens High School. It is free and open to the public.

The twelve students have been creating art in the style of Claes Oldenburg, known for his large scale contemporary installations, soft sculptures, and focus on everyday objects.

The student work that will be displayed includes a foam sculpture of a giant pair of sunglasses and pop art relief sculptures that use pizza boxes as a base.

The exhibit will be held in the Stevens art classrooms, accessible by the back bus loop, and will include a chalk art display outside. Stevens is located at 600 N. Ellison Drive. 

Participating schools are Neff, Rayburn, Ross, and Rudder middle schools.

Camp art teachers are Ambra Hernandez, Theresa Yasger, and Maria Rangcapan.

Across the District, almost 1,200 elementary school students are also participating in art camps this summer.
