Exhibit: Middletown High School: Advanced Placement Studio Art

Tuesday, March 30, 2021 to Friday, April 30, 2021

The Historic Odessa Foundation is proud to showcase the creative talents of students from the Appoquinimink School District’s Middletown High School’s Advanced Placement (AP) Studio Art Class in an exhibit from March 30 to April 30, 2021, in the Foundation’s Visitor Center Gallery. Visitors will get a chance to see what these promising artists have accomplished over the past school year to complete their AP Senior Portfolios.

Each art student enrolled in Middletown High School’s AP Studio Art course is required to create a 24-piece portfolio by the end of their senior year.  The art students have selected ten of their best art pieces for display with the advice of their art teacher Brianna Shetzler.  A variety of mediums will be exhibited in the gallery including drawing media, painting media, fabric dye, and cut paper.

On Thursday, April 15, from 6 to 8 p.m., the community is invited to a meet and greet with the artists and their teacher during the Opening Artists Reception to be held in HOF’s Visitor Center Gallery.  Light refreshments will be served.
