Joseph & Harriet Kern Gallery

On display starting February 18, 2019

The sampling of work in the Carron Family Gallery represents student portfolios and individual works that have been awarded distinction on a national level. AP students create a portfolio senior year, that synthesizes both technical and conceptual skills driven by what they have to say. We drive our students to ask hard questions, to pay attention to how they pay attention. We teach them how to match their materials and processes to their ideas. The individual student and their voice are at the center of our process. The result is student artwork that is as potent as it is diverse as the students themselves.
