RMS student photographers to showcase work
RONAN — There’s no shortage of creativity in Ronan Middle School.
Images reflecting the imagination and skill of young photographers from the school aptly demonstrate that point.
Students in fifth through eighth grades will display their talents at a photographic art show Friday, Jan. 18, at the Ronan Middle School Commons. Mounted photographs will be on public display throughout the area near the entrance to the Ronan Performing Arts Center, providing a taste of the photographic art skills students developed this year.
All of the photographs are produced by students in Jim Blow’s graphic arts and multimedia classes at RMS — the core subject in those classes is photography.
The public is encouraged to attend this free event, which will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. just prior to the opening of the school drama production “Surf’s Up” in the performing arts center.
Attendees are invited to vote for best in show, as well as bid on silent auction prints. Funds raised will help offset cost of the show and go toward future purchases of equipment for the classes.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for the community to see how talented our students are,” Blow said. “Each of these students has produced artwork that is typical of more experienced photographers that are much longer in tooth. And, for them, it’s really just the tip of the iceberg.”
