Building Community - Springfield Conservatory of the Arts High School Students Exhibit At AIC

Be kind. Work hard. Make art. 

Springfield Conservatory of the Arts is a Springfield Public School where students make art everyday though dance, theatre, music and visual art while enriching their academic achievement. Students have access to real world experience to help them transition into higher education or the workforce through community engagement. Students participate in dual enrollment at AIC, taking college courses while attending high school. Currently, we have 2 students with work in this exhibit that also take college courses at AIC.

Opening reception: 10/12/19, 12 to 2 pm, at the Shea Memorial Library Art Gallery, 1000 State Street, Springfield, MA 01109

This exhibit has been developed and curated by the Advanced Placement Art students from Springfield Conservatory of the Arts. The title, “Happy Accidents”, was chosen to signify their struggles with embracing the challenges of taking chances.
