The annual Solon High School and Solon Middle School Art Show is now open to the public as a virtual viewing experience.
Throughout the past year, the arts have served as an important outlet for student expression. “The students have worked very hard this year creating and learning in ways we never thought possible,” said Solon High School art teacher Jen Thompson.
For this year’s virtual art show, she asked students to express through a voice recording how they feel about art and how it has helped them during the pandemic. The student artists’ thoughts about art are an integral part of the 2021 virtual art show, Mrs. Thompson said, citing an anonymous quote about this challenging year that resonated with her and her students: “Science will get us out of this, but art will get us through this.”
