Come see the wonderful artwork on exhibit in the Teen Room and our two display cases! The works, which range from fanciful ceramic sculptures to self portraits in pencil, are created by students at Lawrence School (grades 7 & 8) and Falmouth High School (grades 9-12). Falmouth Public Schools Art Department Head, Rebecca Vieira has the following to say about this terrific exhibit:
“Art students from the Falmouth Public Schools have been selected to display their creative works at the Falmouth Public Library, Teen Room during the month of March. The art show entitled, “Art Shapes the World” is presented during Youth Art Month, a national celebration to emphasize the value of art education for all children and to encourage support for quality school art programs in Falmouth Public Schools.
The mission of the Falmouth Art Department is to teach critical thinking skills, encourage creative problem solving, develop positive self-esteem, and promote self-discipline and motivation. All of these skills are vital to the success of our future leaders-our children of Falmouth.
A critical part of our sequential art program is to provide students with instruction from elementary school through high school so students can develop their skills in creating, revising, exhibiting, and assessing their work.
The work that will be on display is a collection of student work from grades seven through twelve which include a variety of media, techniques, and themes. Please join us on Thursday, March 15th 2012 from 2:30-4:00 to view the art work, meet the Falmouth art teachers, and enjoy some refreshments.
A complimentary show of work by students in grades kindergarten through sixth grade will be shown at the Maser Gallery at the FCTV-13 studio during the same time.”
We hope you stop by!
