On Thursday, January 17, 2013, In-School Electives (ISE) had its first art show in East Palo Alto Academy’s Gym. The show was in collaboration with the painting elective class at the school. The students, with guidance from Artist in Residence Scape Martinez and ISE Instructor Laura Nunez, curated the show and wrote artist bios highlighting their inspirations and achievements.
During lunchtime, students and teachers walked through and viewed all the artwork. The ISE students demonstrated great pride in sharing their art with the rest of the school as onlookers recognized and showed respect for each piece of art.
The vibrancy of the artwork is a reflection of the personalities, styles and cultures at East Palo Alto Academy. The wheels of creativity are moving and MMAP’s ISE students are making big waves. We look forward to seeing more to come. Thank you to Scape and Laura!
