“Artists of Tomorrow, Today” Virtual Studio Art AP Exhibition and Recognition Ceremony

The “Artists of Tomorrow, Today” Studio Art AP exhibition presents a selection of works from the Studio Art AP Portfolios created by the Oak Hills High School students enrolled in Studio Art AP 2D Design, 2D Design: Photography, 3D Design, and Drawing. The pieces displayed were selected from the Selected Works and Sustained Investigation sections of the portfolio submissions and exemplify the extremely high level of rigor, commitment, and accomplishment that Studio Art AP students can achieve. The exhibition is organized annually as part of a celebration of Studio Art AP student work and recognition of student accomplishments throughout the academic year. The exhibition also serves to inform and expose students, teachers, parents, and members of the community to the Studio Art AP program and the diverse subjects, styles, media, techniques, and expressions that students choose to pursue.

Oak Hills High School Junior and Senior students, enrolled in Jamie Schorsch’s Studio Art AP Drawing and 2D Design classes, Steve Groh’s Studio Art AP 2D Design: Photography class, and Bridget Dignan-Cummins’ Studio Art AP 3D Design class, are represented in the exhibition.

Included in this year’s virtual exhibition and recognition ceremony are Senior Awards and Scholarships. Join us here virtually in celebrating the accomplishments of the Studio Art AP students at Oak Hills High School.
