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

“The magic of our Step Into Art work was the combination of art-making and art-viewing…. Too often, kids learn about something without getting hands-on experience. Working in different media – pastels, pencils, and poetry – students created their own art in response to what they had seen on the museum walls. Students who struggle with writing were engrossed in their poems….We are so fortunate to welcome Step Into Art to the Murphy School”
