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.

We look forward to sharing future in-person exhibition events once schools, galleries, and libraries re-open, and we can all safely gather together again.  In the meantime, we hope you will enjoy the glimpses of student learning and creativity provided in the exhibition materials below.  Now, as always, 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.”
