Welcome to the Springfield Township High School Art Blog. The purpose of this forum is to inspire discourse surrounding your artistic experiences while building writing skills, exercising your art vocabulary, and refining descriptive language relating to art. In your writing, you may choose to discuss museum and gallery exhibitions, publications, articles, professional works, student works, or responses to each other’s ideas and investigations. Additionally, participants may want to pose questions or react to artistic predicaments, sharing the trials, frustrations, solutions, or the general excitement we feel when we make or look at art.

Last weekend was the “Center City East” Philadelphia Open Studio tour, featuring artists east of the Schuylkill  River. This self-directed tour includes some of the following (larger) studio complexes: 915 Spring Garden Street Studios, Crane Old School, Crane Arts, and 1241 Carpenter Street studios.  A visit to these venues allows you to see the scope and diversity of fine art and artists working in the Philadelphia region.  You also get to meet and talk with the artists personally and experience their creative environment.  Some studios are quite Spartan (no school reference intended) while others appear more like someone's living room.  It would take paragraphs to describe the experience, and professional journalists have already covered it in more concise detail than I am capable.  I highly recommend touring the studios next time around.  For more information check out this link-
