Exhibitions

Step Into Art programs culminate in festive exhibitions, where students enjoy the pride of sharing their creative work with the community and gain confidence as public speakers. Our sixth-grade exhibition with Mother Caroline Academy takes place each winter in a beautiful gallery at Harvard University, helping nurture students’ aspirations for the future. Our third-grade exhibitions are held throughout the year at schools all over Boston. We also have a special third-grade exhibition at the Codman Square Branch of the Boston Public Library, showcasing the creative work of children from Lee Academy Pilot School, the newest Step Into Art partner. The students’ self-portraits and poetry light up the library’s Children’s Room.

Come see the impact of our programs by attending one of our exhibition events. Meet the sixth-grade student artists as they proudly discuss their artwork and writing with visitors at Harvard this winter. Enjoy art, poetry, and celebration at Codman Square this spring. Please Step Into Art with us!

“The most memorable moment was seeing the excitement on families’ faces as they read their children’s poems and saw their self-portraits.  I was amazed by the full house of families that came to our Step Into Art celebration!  Thank you for another great year of partnership and learning.”
