Altha School held Art Show

Artist Pablo Picasso once said, “Every child is an artist.” This was the motto of the first ever Altha Art Show on May 9th, 2024. The Altha Art Club students were able to demonstrate their understanding of art principles in a creative and unique way.  The Altha Public School Sixth Grade Art Class and Middle/High School Art Club hosted the “Art to Fashion” Art Show and Auction featuring works of art by Pre-K and students sixth through twelfth grade. The event featured the history of art from an African perspective.The artwork focused at the show consisted of Egyptian pharaoh masks, abstract African masks inspired by Picasso, Tingatinga Art, and the artwork of Alma Thomas. Additionally, the art show featured Surrealist “Melting Clocks” pottery inspired by Salvador Dali, Pointillism cartoon characters based on the work of artist Roy Lechtenstein, Graffiti art similar to Keith Haring and paintings using robotics influenced by fashion designer Alexander McQueen. Students were even able to design shirts to wear and were featured on WJHG news. At the show students were also able to put their artistic abilities to the test at stations in which the guests could paint with bubbles and Sphero robots. Students donated artwork to be auctioned to the highest bidder to fund future art projects. Altha School’s Art teacher, Amanda Hutchins, stated she is excited about the opportunity for her students to demonstrate their talents and seeing how much they grow over artistically.
