The Byram Hills Art Show Goes Digital

The Byram Hills Fine Arts Department is proud to present TWO virtual art shows premiering simultaneously on the Byram Hills website on May 12th at 6 pm.  
The K-12 Art Show will feature work from our youngest kindergarten students, our graduating seniors, and all students in-between.  Viewers will see the art world through the lens of children and their boundless imaginations.

The AP Art Show features artwork by students whose coursework includes AP Photo, AP Graphic Design, AP Studio Art, and AP 3-Dimensional Design.  Each AP art student will present a total of ten pieces, with many supporting their sustained investigations, a portfolio of related work.

In tandem with the Byram Hills Media Center, all 11 District art teachers collaborated to create a virtual experience for our community to celebrate the creativity of our young artists.  Much of the artwork includes written statements from the artist allowing the viewer to understand the creative mindset behind each work of art.  Our youngest learners engaged in conversations about art with their families before selecting an original piece for the art show.  Students scripted responses to a writing prompt which tapped into their emotional reactions to art.

“I am so proud of the student artwork that has been accomplished this year,” said Mr. Pete Pauliks, Byram Hills Director of Fine Arts.  “Our students deserve to have their art showcased and recognized by the Byram Hills community and beyond. What a treat!”
