Pilgrim HS Art Show

Pilgrim HS Student Art Exhibit

Pilgrim High School Student Art Show

June 6, 2020 -- Students and teachers were busy this academic year at Warwick's Pilgrim High School. Dedication and resourcefulness have created the artwork now on display in our new online exhibit.

Pilgrim High School believes a visual arts education benefits the student -- cultivating the whole individual, gradually building many kinds of literacy into unique forms of expression and communication while developing intuition, reasoning, imagination, problem-solving, creative and critical thinking, and dexterity.

A visual arts education also benefits society, because students gain powerful tools for understanding human experience, both past and present. By studying visual arts, students stimulate their natural creativity and learn to develop it to meet the needs of a complex and competitive society.

Created by students in grades 9 through 12, the works in this online exhibit draw upon a variety of media, including photography, painting, and drawing.

As one who stands against the wave of today’s trends by doing community prevention work, I think standing out is the most important part of being a unique individual. Never stop being you!

I photograph places with stories that have been forgotten by time. I also photograph people. Whether I am photographing people or places I make sure that there is always a story being told.

I attempted to draw a silly face because I thought it would be a nice challenge, out of my comfort zone. Also, I thought it would be fun to depict a fun expression and spread positive energy through this piece.

Mystic Waves

Artist: Kaylee C.

Grade 9

I painted this piece the way I did because I have salt water in my blood. I include the beach and the water in everything I do. Water is basically a part of me, it always has been. I'm happiest in the water, so painting this piece made me feel calm and excited to hit some waves this summer.
