You don’t need to travel far to be inspired this spring. At the All-City Art Show, set for 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, May 1, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 2, at Marion High School’s F. Ritchie Walton Performing Arts Center, creative works from students of all ages will be on display, and visitors will have the chance to participate in several interactive art activities:
  • Pottery wheels: Art students will help guide visitors through the experience of experience working with clay.
  • Digital art: Use special tablet computers to create drawings.
  • Magnetic sculpture: Science and art meet as you manipulate materials to create your own sculpture.
  • Be a part of the art: Take a turn in our photo booth and see what the famed painting “American Gothic” looks like with you in the picture.
  • Instagram challenge: Take photos and share them with the world!

Marion Community Schools’ art programs have consistently offered students outstanding opportunities, and in the last few years several students have had their works chosen for regional, state, and even national competitions, including the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra’s Symphony in Color awards and the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. Our art programs culminate with a wide array of courses at Marion High School, including drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, photography, and more.

At the All-City Art Show, visitors will get the chance to see creativity in action — and take some inspiration home with them, too. There will be a silent auction fundraiser of art items created or donated by MCS art teachers.

Art awards for all ages (judged by MCS art teachers) will be announced at 5:30 p.m. Friday.
