AP Art Students Take Part in Phoenix Village Art Show

By Lael Pilson-Savage, Staff Writer

A number of AP art students participated in an exhibition at the Phoenix Village Art Center on Feb. 5.  The artwork consisted of nature, self-portraits and objects that symbolized situations that occurred in individuals’ lives.

“My art work is about the pain and depression I went through all my life. Art itself is very therapeutic for me to get through tough times,” said one MHS student who wished to remain anonymous.

The faculty also enjoy the work being displayed.

“I love the art work. I never took art myself in high school when I went to Methacton, although I wish I did. I think the AP students at MHS are so talented and gifted. It’s a great way for the students to express themselves and have an emotional connection with the school and have memories to remember once they graduate,” said one teacher.
