An exhibit of student work from the Gettysburg Area High School Art Department
Created during the Covid-19 Pandemic.
Despite the need to adapt to online school, hybrid schedules, wearing masks to school, and having limited social interactions, many STUDENTS STILL MADE ART. With all the stresses associated with changing family dynamics, sudden economic occurrences, limited resources, and the inability to travel to inspirational places, STUDENTS FOUND A WAY TO DO WHAT THEY LOVE. Many even garnered prestigious awards. With their art, some told stories. Some found solace, some painted dreams. Some painted nightmares. Some escaped the stress of the pandemic. For some students, COVID DID NOT STOP CREATIVITY. I was proud of so many of my students who found a way to bond and grow together through their art, during this challenging time.
