Ogden School District values the arts as more than extra curricular subjects. The arts are essential to the well being of our students. We are thrilled to be able to share music with every elementary aged student with drama and art also being taught at several of our schools. The secondary music, art, drama and dance programs are vibrant and important parts of our school culture and student life. We look forward to the future while embracing our pasts.
We are so grateful for the support of our community organizations that continue to support the arts in Utah! We would like to especially thank the Ogden School Foundation for their continuing support of the arts in Ogden. Follow the link if you would like to know more about the Ogden School Foundation.
Ben Lomond High School students enrolled in WSU, Art1010 created a piece of art based on the questions, "If you were to make a piece of art to help the world right now process and work through what we are experiencing, what would you create?" While reading the text, Living with Art, Tenth Edition as part of their course work, students are exploring the why behind art, how art has changed over time and what purpose art has in life. This show is a synthesis of what students have digested from their text, processed during this time, and is a window into what the artists think others need to see and potentially ponder. Each piece has a unique artist statement, in hopes that the audience will engage with each artist's body of work. Students only had two months to create each piece. As you engage with the show we ask you to think about what you would create?
