Featuring: High School students from the High School of Art & Design And The High School of Fashion Industries

This exhibit explores work by students from The High School of Art & Design and The High School of Fashion Industries, as well as the pedagogy of the two teachers who work with the students. Teaching creativity is explored by breaking down the barriers to self-expression with our students. The students’ work exhibited here centers around telling a story (HSFI) and selling an idea (Art & Design). Students who were juniors and seniors during the 2017-2018 school year will be present to show their work and discuss their relationships with their teachers and fellow students.

    During one of the most challenging years of our lives, our students made incredible images that captured so many aspects of their experiences. As you can see, our students continued and increased their capacity to create invigorating images with perseverance and heart. We look at this past year, a year in a pandemic, where students got to pause and think about what really matters to them. Students increased their shared experience of photography to those they photographed and were asked to engage in projects on a much more independent level during remote learning. In this exhibit, students highlight this incredible work. By clicking on the QR codes next to the students photographs, you will be able to hear from the students directly.
