All Saints’ Episcopal School of Fort Worth is delighted to have the opportunity to showcase the artistic works of our Upper School, Middle School and Lower School art students, photography students, alumni, and art educators at BRIT in the Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall from November 3 – December 15, 2017. The art pieces express botanical subject matter in a variety of styles, including Photorealism, Impressionism, and Abstraction. Works will reflect a wide range of media, including pencil, pastel, watercolor, acrylic and encaustic.
The All Saints’ Episcopal School of Fort Worth’s Visual Arts Program aims to motivate students to explore essential questions, which will result in developing and expanding visual perception, aesthetic awareness, historic perspective, artistic skills and techniques and critical thinking practices. Through a sequential, developmental curriculum alignment, emphasizing critical thinking, students have the opportunity to learn and analyze works of art while gaining the skills of fine artisanship. The overall objective is for students to emerge with refined technical skills, a well-informed appreciation of the expression of others, and confidence to cultivate art reflecting their artistic visions.
Art at BRIT offers two distinctive art viewing spaces: the elegant Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall and the smaller, more intimate Upper Atrium Collections Gallery. The Samples Exhibit Hall showcases botanical art and artwork dealing with topics such as ecology, plants, sustainability, conservation, and the natural world – we highlight work by local and national artists, both well-known and emerging. The Upper Atrium Collections Gallery features a rotation of botanical and nature-based prints from our Library collection, including The Arader Natural History Collection of Art. We honor and celebrate the traditional roots of botanical art, while also expanding and redefining the field for the 21st century.
