Englewood Public Library saw a lot more foot traffic and splashes of extra color at the Englewood Schools Art Show Reception, where students from elementary to high school had works on display.
Cris Woessner, a 12th-grader at Englewood High School, had an ink and washi tape piece featured, depicting a person Woessner follows on Instagram.
Woessner, who has been doing art since elementary school and went to an arts-centric middle school, is working on an Advanced Placement art portfolio at Englewood High School. Woessner talked about the benefit of being featured in the school district's display.
“It's just nice to know people off the internet are seeing my stuff,” Woessner said. “I'd rather it be seen physically rather than scrolling through a site.”
Dozens of families rolled through the library at the April 4 event at 1000 Englewood Parkway, finding their children's pieces and taking photos. School district officials also came to check out the artwork.
Alex Barton, a 17-year-old student at Colorado's Finest High School of Choice in Englewood, said he's more into abstract art, but he took a swing at drawing a character from one of his favorite movies, “Beetlejuice.”
“It's cool to see my art next to great artists in Englewood,” Barton said.
