WHO: Bulkeley Middle School and Rhinebeck High School art students from grades six through twelve present a body of work containing a variety of media used in their academic classes. This show highlights works of art by students studying with Jennifer Famiglietti, Cynthia Baer and Kathryn Giles. These works show the expertise students gain as they study art within Rhinebeck Central Schools’ arts curriculum as well as the faculty’s prowess in developing artist talent.
WHAT: “Growing Ideas” a group exhibit of student work includes still life, portrait, landscape, computer graphics and abstract works. While the works reflect the students’ expertise in using mixed media, drawing (pencil or charcoal), pastel, stained glass, acrylic painting and technology, they also reflect the themes and interests of the individual student. Some themes reflect local and/or distant outdoor life, others show a student’s self-awareness, while others substantiate the student’s keen understanding of balancing light, and color and hues. This exhibit provides a tasting of the many different creative experiences Rhinebeck Central School students in grades 6 through 12 are exposed to as they participate in Rhinebeck’s course offerings and learn about visual art including combining visual art and technology. “Growing Ideas” is from May 1 – May 27, 2010.
WHY: At this time when Federal and State budget line items for education are being cut, it is important to see first hand the results of our educational dollars. In Rhinebeck teachers draw out their students’ talents within a structured environment encouraging growth and maturation.
