Historically, the heart of the annual Ursuline School Art Show is the individual senior displays, arranged in a gallery like setting in the center of the Tully Family Auditorium- Gymnasium. Graduating seniors present their most prized pieces at the Art Show. They share their artistic journey and point of view with the school community as well as their family and friends.
The Virtual Art Show we unveiled on May 14, 2020 is the result of the collaborative efforts of our incredibly talented and hard-working art students, and their innovative and dedicated teachers.
Every senior art student was asked to select their favorite and most important pieces of work from throughout their high school careers. In order to digitize these pieces, students photographed and scanned each piece individually, creating an image file to add to their catalog.
Once all of their pieces were cataloged, we asked our students to write a personal statement. This required them to take a moment to reflect on their growth as an artist and explain their personal point of view as an artist, so that others could get a deeper look at each piece.
We chose to use Adobe portfolio to build our Virtual Art Show, as we felt it allowed for the display of each individual student's work in an organized and focused manner, making it a superior choice of platform. The site is structured so that every artist has their own section to display their chosen pieces and their personal statements.
Thank you to Visual Arts & Media Department Chair Ms. Quartaro '80 and faculty members Mrs. LaBella '83, Ms. DiIorio, Mrs. Stones '96, and Ms. Brittis '06 for their commitment and encouragement of our students.
We hope you enjoy these works of art by the Class of 2020!
