Art and Design Students Guide Sixth-Grade Class from Inspiration to Exhibition

By schwartzsa | March 11, 2011

Original artwork by students of the Good Sheppard School in Glenside, Pa., is currently on exhibit in the Judith Taylor Student Gallery.

Students in The Uses of Theory in Art Education course with John A. Heusser, Adjunct Professor of Art and Design, visited the school to talk to the sixth-grade students about the history of Grey Towers Castle and the gallery program at the University. Students currently enrolled in The Artist and The Exhibition: Gallery Practicum with Matthew Borgen, Adjunct Professor of Art and Design, organized and installed the work.

The exhibition, titled Me in the Middle Ages, includes 34 original pieces, each done on 12-by-18-inch construction paper. The sixth-grade students were asked to draw themselves as characters from the Middle Ages.
