The Inly Middle School students in the spring art elective class had the opportunity to create a sculpture for a specific destination—the Student Outdoor Sculpture show (through June 6, 2010) at the Art Complex Museum, in Duxbury, MA!

Students worked together in small groups, and they were involved in all aspects of the artistic process. Collaborative art making can be challenging at times, and these students worked well figuring out what they really wanted to create, how to make that happen, and what materials would hold up for an outdoor installation.
At the art show opening on May 16, the students spoke about their work to viewers on a “Sculpture Walk-through.” Most of the sculptures are made by high school students, and the artwork created by our Middle School students is impressive! Congratulations!
The show is up through June 6, 2010 so please stop by ANYTIME, and take a look!
