Front Gallery

Art League Houston (ALH) is excited to present BLACKLIGHT, the 2017 Summer High School Studio Art Intensive Exhibition, an annual group exhibition by students from Art League’s High School Intensive Program. This four-week summer program is a rigorous, in-depth studio art experience for high school students, ages 14-17. Participants received six hours of coursework each day in a variety of mediums, beginning with drawing and painting and expanding to less traditional forms. 

Led by established local, national and international artists and educators, projects go beyond techniques traditionally taught in high school art classes, teaching students practical skills necessary to develop as artists. In addition to studio classes, guest speakers (practicing artists, curators, and arts administrators) met with participants throughout the program to share stories and provide insight into the art world.  Participants also visited various art spaces and cultural institutions around Houston, gaining insight into the local arts climate in Houston. Each participant received an individual portfolio session to help prepare for college and art school admissions. 

Participating High School Students: Chloe Abate, Bri Al-Bahish, Eriane Austria, William Castillo, Morgan Fisher, Emily Goll-Broyles, Chloe Gonzales, Griffin Haq, Angel Hoang, Melissa Lara, Sarah Perkison, Lillian Plumlee, Aline Rodriguez, Jacob Severo, Mina Silva, Miriam Valdez

Intensive Counselor: Saxton Fisher

Participating Teaching Artists: Johan Barrios and Victoria Robles Barrios, Lee Carrier, María-Elisa Heg, Erin Joyce, Melinda Laszcynski, Gabriel Martinez, Ayanna Jolivet McCloud, Hazel Meyer, Lovie Olivia, Henry Sanchez, Carrie Schneider, Rajab Ali Sayed, Patrick Turk, Giovanni Valderas, Sarah Welch
