The halls of Bedford High School were abuzz with activity this morning as the 2015 K-12 Art Show came together.

All of Bedford’s art classes have submitted work for the 2015 comprehensive student show that begins this evening and continues through Sunday afternoon, filling the High School with amazing work.

The youngest artists work with Mr. Preusch in the kindergarten at Davis School. Among  other projects, the kindergartners drew leafless trees into styrofoam plates, then used the plates to print the trees, four times on a single sheet of paper. After the prints dried, the student artists used Q-tips and tempera paint to “dress” their trees for each of the four seasons.

Work from all four of Bedford’s schools is included in the show, with special notice to this year’s senior class artists.

Clustered in the BHS entrance, each graduating senior has created a unique display space for their work.
