Exhibitions

Step Into Art programs culminate in festive exhibitions, where students enjoy the pride of sharing their creative work with the community. Our sixth-grade exhibition with Mother Caroline Academy traditionally takes place each winter in a beautiful gallery at Harvard University. Our third-grade exhibitions are held throughout the year at schools all over Boston, and we also hold a special third-grade exhibition with Lee Academy Pilot School at the Codman Square Branch of the Boston Public Library. We look forward to sharing future in-person exhibition events again, but in the meantime, we hope you will enjoy the glimpses of student learning and creativity showcased in the virtual exhibition materials below.

STEP INTO ART WITH LEE ACADEMY 3RD GRADERS:  SELF-PORTRAITS & POETRY INSPIRED BY KEHINDE WILEY

“Our new partnership with Step Into Art provided an incredibly rich experience for our third graders. Our students had opportunities to engage with art and with artists, to create self-portraits and poetry, and to enjoy unique access to the Gardner Museum. We were also able to showcase and celebrate our students’ creative work at our neighborhood public library…. Thank you for building community and inspiring our young artists!”
