Once again, art students at South Walton High School are using the walls of the Coastal Branch Library to exhibit their works this winter.
This is the fourth year Dr. Vivian Moreira Komando's students exhibiting at the library. This year, the exhibit is of work created by some of her AP Studio Art Students.
Eight students hung work with each having a minimum of five works.
"The works are mostly based on their AP Studio Art concentrations -- a personal, focused study. Other works may be from their breadth -- the variety section of their AP portfolios -- or new works they are currently working on for this year's AP portfolios," said Komando.
The selection includes photography, drawings, paintings, digital manipulation and mixed media, which varies in subject matter and interpretations by each student.
"South Walton High School is home to many accomplished young artists on the Emerald Coast," she said. "These AP Studio Art students have created wonderful portfolios to submit to the College Board for the AP Studio Art Portfolio assessments in 2D, drawing, and 3D."
Artists exhibiting include Sofia Papagni, a senior who submitted a 2D portfolio as a junior and is currently working on an AP drawing portfolio.
Slater Silk submitted two portfolios as a junior: a drawing portfolio, a 2D photography-based portfolio, and he is presently working on a 3D portfolio.
Jielle Paul submitted a 2D photography-based portfolio as a sophomore. She is a junior this year and working on a 3D portfolio.
Marley Davis and Kyzer Schilling, both seniors, submitted 2D photography portfolios. Marley is currently in the senior collaborations class developing drawing work and Kyzer is pursuing the 2D innovations submission with photography work for Photoshop certification.
My Huyen Truong and Meaghan Kirwan submitted 2D portfolios with their drawing work. As seniors, My is working on a drawing portfolio and Meaghan is working on a 3D portfolio.
"These students are representative of the fine young artists attending SWHS and I have the pleasure of working with," said Komando.
SWHS had a 98 percent pass rate on their AP Studio Art Portfolios in 2017 for 43 student-submitted portfolios to the College Board.
A selection from this group of SWHS AP art students will exhibit work at the Coastal Branch Library through January.
