Our educators have a long tradition of working with area school students and their teachers to organize student art exhibits and we partner with schools, community organizations, and statewide agencies to present an ongoing schedule of exhibitions of art by students from the area.
Many schools have been forced to reduce or even cut art classes altogether. Now more than ever, communities need cultural institutions to help bridge the gap in offering artistic opportunities to students.
Winter Sky Student Exhibit: Your Place in the Stars
Exhibit dates: November 30 – March 11, 2018
The Rockwell is excited to collaborate with the Corning-Painted Post Area School District and the Southeast Steuben County Library on a new student exhibit and outreach project, blending art-making with digital technology. This program involved 140 middle school students through an innovative outreach initiative which took place in the classroom. Art teacher Mrs. Megan Wukovitz and her eighth-grade Digital Art classes at Corning-Painted Post Middle School created digital collages and three-dimensional printed stars inspired by the night sky and three contemporary Native American works of art from the Rockwell collection.
High School Learning Center Student Exhibit | 2018 Alley Art Project
Exhibit dates: May 18, 2018 – September 9, 2018
Join us as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Alley Art Project! This year, student designers draw inspiration from The Rockwell Museum’s collection of Frederick Carder Steuben glass, honoring the 150th anniversary of glassmaking in Corning. Students researched six major local industries to incorporate the rich history of glass and the region into the 2018 mural design.
This project is made possible in part by grants from The Triangle Fund, The Great Circle Foundation Inc., and William G. McGowan Charitable Fund
Corning-Painted Post High School IB Visual Art
Exhibit dates: March 30, 2018 – April 18, 2018
In collaboration with Corning-Painted Post High School, The Rockwell Museum presents a special exhibit of the works of six International Baccalaureate Visual Arts program students. The exhibit celebrates the artist efforts of:
Higher Level: Two-year Program with teacher Lisa Rossi-Sullivan
Standard Level: One-year Program with teacher Sharron Holland
The students visited The Rockwell during the school year to study and draw inspiration from the collection for their own works of art. As part of the program, the students curated their own student art show in The Rockwell’s Student Gallery.
The IB Visual Arts Program supports the notion that art is an integral part of everyday life, permeating all levels of human creativity, expression, communication and understanding. It is a thought-provoking course that encourages students to challenge their own creative and cultural expectations and boundaries.
A Moment in Time: 4th Grade Pinhole Photography Student Exhibit with the Science & Discovery Center
Exhibit Dates: April 9, 2018 – May 7, 2018
A Moment in Time is a pinhole photography project supported by a Teaching Artist grant. This project is led by the Science & Discovery Center (SDC) at Hugh Gregg Elementary and Winfield Elementary Schools, with participation from the Chemung Valley Historical Society (CVHS) and Corning-Painted Post Area School District. In this project, students learned about early photography and produced a photograph with a pinhole camera – which recorded, in many ways, a moment in time. The Rockwell Museum believes in the importance of serving as a community center, and was pleased to host this student exhibit.
This project was made possible, in part, with public funds from NYSCA’s Decentralization Program, administered regionally by The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes.
