Students Showcase Art Masterpieces

Students Showcase Art Masterpieces

Visitors to the Second Baptist School Library saw more than books as they entered through the double doors December 6-8. Instead, they walked into a world filled with wonder and exploration of wall-to-wall pieces of art created by over 500 middle and upper school SBS students. A wide range of mediums were on display, including paintings, drawings, film, photography, digital art, ceramics and sculptures of all kind. It was an exhibit of fierce creativity, mad skills and diligence.

“I am so incredibly proud of my students’ creativity and hard work!” exclaimed Middle School Art Teacher Sarah McKeon. “I get to see God's creativity everyday through my students’ joy and creativity, and I'm thankful they get to share that with others through the Fall Art Show. It’s a sweet opportunity to see our SBS community express themselves in all areas with excellence.” 

Over the semester, students practiced new methods and techniques while learning about various artists. For sixth graders who drew self portraits, it was both a personal and intricate experience of reflection as they examined how God created every unique detail.   

The three-day art exhibit allowed fifth through twelfth grade students to show their best work. Some art pieces were made with the intention of being entered into the student art competition at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. 

McKeon continued,“The Fall Art Show is the arts’ equivalent of the playoff game, the last performance or the big concert. For our art students who are not involved in other activities, this is their time to shine.” And shine, they did! When one does a double take or has to study a piece to convince themselves that it is actually a drawing and not a photograph, success! 

The SBS community boasted of brilliant artists behind each masterpiece on display at this year’s Fall Art Show. A timely reminder to both artists and art admirers - 
 “You are God’s masterpiece created in Jesus Christ to do good works, which God prepared in advance for you to do.” -  Ephesians 2:10
