The projects selected represent the variety of art created by our students. The art staff displays work from as many students as possible. Project criteria, participation in class, and diversity of art work are considered when selecting pieces to display.In the spring, we open our doors for family and friends to join us during our annual school art show.
Neshaminy District Art Show
The District Art Show is held at the end of each school year. We are VERY PROUD of the art produced at Maple Point Middle School. Please understand that space at the art show is VERY LIMITED. Each art teacher can only select 60 pieces of art from the entire school year. Only the highest quality art pieces, best exemplifying the given criteria for each project over ALL ROTATIONS, are selected.
