AltSchool Dogpatch celebrated the culmination of our Unit of Inquiry on art and self-expression by hosting a Gala Evening of Art with special guests of honor, our students and their families! We showcased all of the hard work that our artists have been doing over the past two months, including pottery, paintings, portraits, watershed models, dioramas, and more.
For the featured pieces, we asked each student to think about a “BIG IDEA” --a message, feeling, or thought -- that they would like to express through their art work. Students designed canvases and incorporated lines, colors, shapes, patterns and textures to best represent their ideas.The entire Dogpatch school family got a chance to celebrate learning and toast our students together in a magical evening of art, food, and fancy attire.
