This month the Art House celebrates arts education in Northville Public Schools. On view is the work of over 45 students in two exhibitions, the Northville High School IB Art Exhibition and the Northville Public Schools Virtual Art Exhibition. This Spring, the annual Northville Art House Arts Scholarship will also be awarded to a Northville High School graduate who plans to obtain an art degree at a college or university.
The Northville High School IB Art Exhibition is a culmination of the annual International Baccalaureate Art program at Northville High School. In the program, students explore skills, techniques, processes, and vocabulary which they use to pursue an in-depth investigation of art and this self-curated group exhibition. In the exhibition, 19 students will present a selection of their best work and communicate their purpose in a written rationale at the Northville Art House.
Monika Miller, Lead Instructor of the IB Art program at Northville High School, shares, “The IB Art students showed a passion for art throughout and despite this pandemic. I am so proud of their commitment to create artwork that is meaningful and personal. These pieces have a connection not only to the artist, but hopefully to all who view them. We thank the Art House for their generous donation of the time and space to house this special and unique exhibition.”
-First held in 1999, the exhibition is held annually to promote the appreciation and importance of arts education. This year the Art House celebrates the spirit of creativity through the work of students in Grades 6 – 12 from Northville Public Schools.
All students in Grades 6 – 12 from Northville Public Schools and surrounding communities were eligible to participate in the exhibition, juried by the Northville Art House Exhibition Committee. Prizes totally over $100 will be given for 1st Place: $50, 2nd Place: $25, 3rd Place: $10 and Honorable Mention Awards at an Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, April 7, 7 pm.
This year the exhibition will be presented online with enhanced gallery labels discussing the artwork. A few works will be available for purchase.
