The Woodlands High School has created a unique art acquisition program. Professional art is chosen by students and permanently displayed on the walls of The Woodlands High School. The collection not only exposes students to art throughout each day but also is used to enrich curriculum in areas such as language arts and social studies.
The inspiration for this new program came from the Greater Latrobe Senior High School in western Pennsylvania. Its unique collection of over 200 pieces of art was started over 70 years ago and continues to grow each year. It is a fascinating reflection of the tastes, history and concerns of high school students for the last seven decades. And, it is a community treasure.
The Woodland High School Art Trust (TWHSAT) has been established to organize and maintain this new art collection chosen and purchased by the students. The role of the Art Trust is to assist the students in selecting artists/works to be considered for the final group of 20 pieces that the student body will vote on. Student docents will present each piece of art along with information on each professional artist to the student body. The students will vote on their favorite pieces thereby giving each student ownership in the selection process.
In addition the Art Trust will fundraise to pay for the installation, presentation and conservation of the purchased works of art. Donations can also be made directly to the Art Trust to support the program.
"The Woodlands High School Art Trust shall establish, oversee and preserve the student art collections of The Woodlands High School and it's feeder schools and shall promote the development of creativity for every student through active involvement in the arts."
