Milton Artists Reveal Work at End of Year Art Show

by Kiran Biddinger on Friday, June 9th, 2017

During my time in Class IV visual arts, Mr. Torney came to pitch the sophomore art choices, labeling Milton’s art program as a vital part of Milton. He called the program one of Milton’s strengths, saying that one of the great opportunities Milton offered to Classes I-III was the variety of courses, ranging from photography to sculpting to painting. Now, at the end of the year, many students from these visual arts courses have the opportunity to showcase their skills, their learning, and their hard work in Milton’s End-of-Year Student Art Show.

Displayed in Pieh Commons from June 1st to June 9th, the art show presents the artwork of Class I-III students who take full year or semester art courses. Walking through Pieh Commons, one can see the variety of pieces everywhere from the walls to the middle of the hallways. These pieces range from photographs to paintings, and they contain messages that comment on many facets of the human existence.

Although some classes, such as Math and English, have assessments to end the year, visual arts classes have students put up artwork. As one of the final projects of the year, students devote a lot of time towards these pieces, giving the same level of detail and focus to their work as they would an English essay. Furthermore, in addition to the students, members of the art faculty direct their energies to ensure the End-of-Year Student Art Show is something their students will be proud of. The week before the art show opened, the teachers spent their afternoons and evenings putting together the show so that we, the audience, could view an incredible display. Emphasizing his appreciation for all of the visual arts faculty for their hard work, Mr. Torney describes preparing for the art show as both “a scramble” and “a challenging show to put up.”

For seniors, the End Of The Year Art Show is bitter-sweet: it indicates the end of their art career at Milton. Their pieces represent not only their growth as artists throughout their years here but also their mark on the visual arts program at Milton. Many of these pieces from the seniors represent not just a half-semester’s worth of work but rather three or four years of hard work and dedication.

However, all students, not just seniors, have the chance to make an impression at the art show. All of the techniques, skills, and mediums that they have learned go into their final pieces of work. Olayeni Oladipo (III) found enjoyment in “making something come to life with a 3D printer” during this year. In posting their final projects of the year, these students are putting themselves out there and displaying the result of their learning from the year for the whole school to see. In the same way that one could feel vulnerable when the whole school has access to his/her English paper, these students take a risk by posting their artwork in this show so that we, the audience, can appreciate their work.
