The Burlington High School AP Studio Art, Portfolio and Drawing & Painting 2 classes will be holding the reception for their annual Portfolio Exhibition next Thursday, May 9, from 6:30 to 8:00 PM.
The Portfolio Exhibition differs from Burlington High’s other Annual Art Exhibition (which occurs in March) in that it is predominantly student-organized. The twenty+ students in the advanced art classes self-select the work to be displayed, they organize their own personal exhibit spaces, and they all will be on hand to discuss their portfolios, which are comprised of the body of work they have developed over the past year or more.
One long-term effort from each student will be on display: each artist has been working on a Concentration, an involved series of artworks whose learning objectives the student developed him- or herself.
Visitors will be able to speak to the artists about their goals and their processes. Refreshments will be provided.
