Foundation grant helps PHS put on Senior Art Show

Posted May 9, 2022

Plymouth High School will present a Senior Art Show this month, showcasing the artistic talents of members of the Class of 2022.

The show, which will feature works created by seniors in the culminating Artist Studio as well as the Draw and Paint classes, will begin at 4 p.m. Tuesday May 24 in and around the Art Room (Room C102).

In addition to viewing artwork, attendees can participate in student-led make-and-take activities inside the Art Room.

Foundation grant funds art display walls

The Senior Art Show will be the second event utilizing new portable art display walls funded by a $5,165 Plymouth Education Foundation grant. PHS art teacher Ryan Krippendorf initially sought a mini-grant to buy two walls, but the concept grew and the foundation’s support allowed the Art Department to purchase 12 walls.

During March, which is Youth Art Month, the walls showcased student artwork in the PHS addition. The walls also were used throughout the year to display changing pieces in various parts of the school.

“This project was an incredible success and has afforded the Art Department a chance to shine a little brighter,” Mr. Krippendorf said. “Students can take a little more pride in their work as some well-deserved recognition falls to them.”
