The art students of Legacy Scholars Academya Volusia County Public School on the Florida United Methodist Children’s Home campus, present their artwork for an exhibit at the company museum during the month of May. The exhibition runs from Thursday May 5 to Saturday May 28.
The student artists have worked diligently all school year on their creations and are very happy to share their works with the community. The exhibited works are the result of the immense creativity, perseverance and dedication of the students.
Legacy not only focuses on academics, but also on the social and emotional learning (SEL) needs of their students. SEL is the process by which children acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships and make responsible decisions.
The visual arts naturally align with students’ social and emotional learning goals and allow them to express themselves creatively in everyday life.
Art students, who range in grades from sixth to 12th grade and have varying skill levels, have recreated works by artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali. They took advantage of a multitude of materials, including watercolor and acrylic paints, alcohol inks, 3D sculptures and modeling clay.
Museum hours are 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. It is located at 360 Main Street in Enterprise.
There is no admission fee; however, donations are gladly accepted.
