Socorro ISD Student Art Exhibit Opens May 27

Officials with the Socorro Independent School District are inviting the public to their annual student art exhibit featuring more than 650 pieces of art work created by students from Pre-Kindergarten to 12th grade on May 27.

The event will showcase the largest collection of sculptures, paintings, drawings, photography, print making, crafts, wearable art, since the exhibit inception 30 years ago, said Macka Jones, SISD visual arts specialist.

“We are very excited about the participation this year,” Jones said. “This is a great opportunity because it shows another aspect of education. The students get to incorporate what they learn in the classroom into their art.”

The pieces were chosen from among more than 2,450 submitted to the Fine Arts Department. A group of judges narrowed the exhibit down to 650.
