The tradition, which dates back more than three decades, returned this year after a pandemic-induced hiatus. The show is free and open to the public each weekday through May 2 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The show features a selection of art from students at all of Christina’s schools, ranging from kindergarteners to seniors in high school.
“It’s fulfilling for us as artists for kids to have that sense of pride,” said Jaime Moore, a Newark High art teacher who helped organize the show.
She said many students used their art to make sense of the last two years of virtual classes and other disruptions.
“Our theme this year has just been ‘together again,’” Moore said. “There’s an awful lot kids need to get out, and part of our mission was to give kids a place to get it out.”
At an opening reception Tuesday evening, many of the young artists delighted in showing off their work to their parents and other family members.
“I worked a long time on this,” Keene Elementary fifth-grader Rebecca Buckley said, pointing toward her drawing of a castle. “It’s cool to see it on display.”
Glasgow High senior Ajai Bogan-El, who plans to attend the Delaware College of Art and Design next year, had two works on display. One was a colored-pencil drawing of an Amazon forest snake, and the other was part of an assignment that asked students to design their own cereal box.
Bogan-El enjoyed getting a chance to display his art.
“It feels pretty great,” he said.
Keene first-grader Hillary Larbie was proudly showing off her drawing of a cityscape. Asked if she wants to be an artist when she grows up, she wasted no time responding, “I already am.”
“I like to draw pictures for my friends,” she added.
Jessica Lloyd, whose son Stephen is a first-grader at Keene, was happy to see his artwork depicting a gumball machine, adding that Stephen often comes home excited about his art class.
“It’s amazing,” Lloyd said. “He talks about Ms. McAllister all the time, so I’m thinking he’s into art.”
