Students’ art is celebrated through the art gallery

The National Art Honor Society mini-gallery is open through Friday, with all new art works and a goal to share student art with the rest of the student body. This gallery allows student artists to not only show others their work, but it also allows artists the opportunity to also advertise the gallery through graphic design and create an inviting exhibit by making decorations.

The goal of the gallery is to essentially just promote artwork that was created by the students in a fun and engaging way,” NAHS officer Sia Parpelli said. “All of us officers are participating in the first art gallery, and hopefully we will see more engagement after seeing our pieces first.”

Besides sharing art with others, those contributing can also be awarded up to three service hours for every piece, decoration, or publicity poster they submit.

There’s a lot to gain from participating in this gallery, including getting to work with other artists and earning volunteer hours,” contributing artist, junior Tuhina Das said. “You get to be a part of something bigger than yourself and show off work that you’re proud of!”

The gallery is strictly student-led, with little to no instruction coming from the NAHS adult advisors. This helps student artists learn how to set up galleries and art exhibitions – a skill useful for those pursuing a career in art or museums.

Participating in galleries gives students an opportunity to practice their aesthetic design skills and advertising for the gallery,” Das said. “There’s a lot that gets put into putting together a gallery, including the selection of a theme, pieces to put up, decorating the gallery room, and marketing the gallery to the school population.”

Service hours are also enticing and can help more reluctant artists feel motivated to show off their creative skills.

I think it’s a really good opportunity as well because you will be able to gain volunteer hours from signing up, and it’s always nice to receive some compliments on any artwork you make!” Parpelli said. “While a lot of people in art classes see your artwork, the art gallery is a chance to show everyone that isn’t in an art class your artistic capabilities.”
