Poly Drivers: Two art shows complete Talent Show evening


The Reflections Art Program is a National PTA initiative to encourage creativity. Students of all grades and abilities may participate. This year the theme was “What Is Your Story?” Poly Drive students participated in weekly art workshops October through February and brought home awards on the local level. All of the artists work was matted and presented in an art show during the Talent Show on Feb. 24.

Special thanks to Deva G for guiding our young artists through the program, for matting the artwork to be displayed, and for coordinating program details. What a difference you have made for our school community! Thank you to the parents that have been so committed to this art program, to Letha M and Tom G for the brilliant installation at the Talent Show and to judges Kelly E, Mrs. Bergeron and Mr. Cellan for their expert eyes.

Finally, and especially – congratulations to all the artists for their hard work and commitment to see it through to the end!

All pieces will be on display at Toucan Gallery at 2505 Montana Avenue April 8-14. Please visit the show and continue your support of Poly Drive talent!

The work was evaluated based upon three criteria:

  1. Interpretation of theme “What is Your Story” -20 points possible
  2. Creativity-10 points possible
