For 26 years, Floyd Middle School students have painted, drawn and sculpted art to showcase to the community. This year, more than 100 people toured The Mable House Gallery in Mableton on the opening night of the Floyd Middle School art show.
Guests admired 850 pieces of artwork that ranged from repoussé metalwork and paintings to sculptures and ceramics. There was a special section dedicated to the “Masters in Motion,” which featured robotics and work geared to science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM). The following video celebrates the moving art masterpieces on display at the gallery show: https://vimeo.com/207807441
Floyd Middle art teacher, Lisa Collins, is the master behind the art show, which she has organized for almost three decades. She now works in collaboration with the school’s science and STEM teacher, Daniel Harbert.
“These two content area teachers combined their instructional talents to do something innovative with students,” said Judith Condon, Cobb County School District Visual Arts Supervisor.
All the Floyd Middle students, who took an art class during the school year, submitted work for the art show, which runs through April 5.
“The Floyd Middle School Celebrates the Arts event gives students the opportunity to share their talent with their community,” said Condon. “It showcases their skill, creativity and love of the arts. It is truly amazing to see what our students are capable of creating!”
