Dozens of Kennett High School artists displayed their talents for their fellow students, teachers, staff, and parents at the school’s annual art show held in the auxiliary gym on April 29.

The show included works from all visual arts classes within the Fine Arts Department. Teachers Ms. Jodi Davidson, Mr. Tom Hironimus, and Mrs. Kathy Caputo Nelms guided their students through the creation and exhibition of their artwork; all three teachers are undeniably impressed by their students.

Mrs. Caputo Nelms said, “The KHS Art Show was an exhibit of work by students from grades 9 through 12 featuring drawings, paintings, ceramics, digital photographs, and graphic designs. Congratulations to the students in the Visual Arts Department on their excellent work this year.”

“The high school art show is a special day for Kennett High School art students. Not only do the students get to show off their skills, but it’s also an opportunity for the KHS staff and students to see their incredible talents and achievements. It’s their day. They work extremely hard throughout the school year to get better at their craft. The art show is their opportunity to be celebrated for all of that hard work and dedication throughout the course for the year. They absolutely deserve all of the accolades they receive,” added Mr. Hironimus.

“The KHS Annual Art show is always one of my favorite events of the year for my students. We have live demos and artwork from Introduction to Ceramic students to Honors 4s. After the pause we had on the show because of COVID for the past two years, it was nice to be back in the swing of things and see the students showcasing their work. The gym was buzzing with positive energy as teachers brought down their classes throughout the day to see the Art Show,” said Ms. Davidson. Her students demonstrated their skills throughout the day, as they took turns throwing pieces on a pottery wheel.

By all accounts, the show was a tremendous success.
