Artwork by Students of Salt Lake Arts Academy • Exhibit runs from Nov 7 to Dec 16, 2022 <strong>ARTIST STATEMENT:</strong> Salt Lake Arts Academy students are  encouraged to explore their world through many different lenses, across subjects.  In these pieces our Visual Arts students in Grades 6-8 express how they see and understand their world: in their own lives, in school and in our larger community.  We asked our students to reflect on what is important to them and how they might communicate an idea through their own artistic creations. For inspiration, students traveled to the Utah Museum of Fine Art, or did a virtual tour, to observe how artists from many regions and backgrounds interpret their ideas about ‘Air’ in their worlds through art.  After a reflection period of discussion and idea sharing, students had their choice of subject and materials to create the pieces in this exhibit, expressing their own ideas about what they see important and relevant in their surroundings. <strong>ARTIST BIOGRAPHY:</strong> Salt Lake Arts Academy is a free public charter school in downtown Salt Lake City, serving 408 students in grades five through eight. Admission is by Lottery, and is open to all students in Utah. Learn more about us at www.slarts.org.
