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.

Alumni, K8, visited from LA last week, and we went to the Philadelphia Museum of Art together. We saw, Represent: 200 years of African American Art, on display across from the museum store. Check out the museum link on top of the right-hand column of this web page. There were works featured by well known artists like Barbara Chase-Riboud, Jacob Lawrence, and Glenn Ligon, but also works by local Philadelphians, John Dowell (former instructor at Tyler) and Mo Brooker (instructor at Moore). The show continues through April 5th.
