Underclassmen Art Show: June 7-11

Open to Guests on Tuesday June 8th from 5-7pm.

ARHS Library

As the year draws to a close, please take a moment to view the wonderful creations from the many of the art students this year. The Algonquin Art Show has always been an important cultural aspect of our department and school. Students work hard every year to create artworks which they are proud of. 

This year, the format for art classes took a non-traditional approach. Students had to try new or different materials, complete certain artworks at home rather than with constant support in a classroom, or see projects redesigned to fit a hybrid model. Despite these many challenges, they were able to create art at a time when expression has become more important than ever before. The value for students to see their work displayed to their community holds more weight than in years prior to the pandemic, because of how many hurdles they have to overcome to make these creations. 

We are so happy to be able to offer families an opportunity to view the resulting artworks, and show our community how our students have risen to the occasion! Click here to register for the Art Show on June 8th.
