Virtual art show link launchesFor the Class of 2021, many of the usual senior year activities have looked a bit different due to the pandemic. When it came to planning the annual art show, teachers Katie DeLorenzo and Theresa Bondgren wanted to make things as interactive as possible so that all student artwork can be recognized.
“That’s my favorite thing, when people look at my artwork, and I can see their expressions,” said senior Elizabeth Bartoszewski.
By using a new online system this year, student work has been set up in a virtual showroom. Anyone can access it and take a tour, clicking on individual pieces to expand them and get a closer look.
“It’s much better than the slideshow from last year,” explained fellow senior Margo Miller. “This year you can actually walk around and look around.”
In a usual year, senior students spend an entire day setting up display boards in the high school gymnasium. The boards show off their favorite work from all four years of art classes. Seniors design their own boards and celebrate how far they’ve come.
“I’ve been looking forward to this senior wall since I was a freshman, but at least we still get to do something this year,” said Tiffani McMahon.
She said the virtual art show includes some of that creativity. Each senior has an entire wall of the showroom to themselves, where they get to decide the placement and size of each piece of artwork.
