From Feb. 6 to Feb. 27, Advanced Placement Studio Art students had their artwork displayed at the Casselberry Art House. Seminole County Public School students, who were lucky enough to find their artwork shown within the exhibit, received the much-deserved praise. The talents of these experienced artists go unmatched, and the city of Casselberry gave them a platform to showcase these skills. 

“I really enjoyed seeing the underclassmen’s art,” said senior Albe DeCosmo. “As a previous underclassman AP student I know how impressive and difficult it is to be in the AP program as an underclassman, it really shows how dedicated and how talented they are.” 

The Casselberry Art House has been hosting high school students’ work for an extensive period of time. Since at least 2017, high-achieving underclassmen have been recognized on multiple occasions by the city of Casselberry. The driven nature of the students that were featured is reflected in their resulting masterpieces. After many months of hard work, AP art students, time and time again, are putting the finishing touches on their artwork.

“Seeing my art displayed felt empowering and validating,” said junior Hensley Carter. “In the beginning, I feared my art wasn’t going to be good enough, but seeing my art displayed made me feel way better.” 

Carter’s experience with the atmosphere of the art show emphasizes how much the exhibit was able to aid in students’ artistic journey. The empowerment that she feels was intended to be found through the art prompt provided. The art exhibition set students up to explore themselves and make a self-led portfolio based on a question they came up with about themselves. Although the art show is over, the journey of making art that calms the mind, or conversely excites it, is not over any time soon for these extremely talented students.
