The Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) Student Focus Art Show, highlighting work from TMA’s fall semester, is on view until April 11, 2019 in the Community Gallery.

This exhibition showcases some of the projects created in the Museum’s youth and teen studio art classes. Students ages 3 to 18 produced the diverse and imaginative works of art through their own interpretations of objects in the TMA collection.

“It’s always such a pleasure to prepare and install art projects from our youth and teen classes in new, creative ways,” said Sara Daniels, studio programs manager. “From matting and framing paintings to finding the right hardware to hang intricate mobiles, it’s all about letting the students’ amazing work shine through.” 

The show features more than 150 works from 15 different classes covering mixed media, sculpture, drawing, painting, glassblowing, and digital photography.

“Once the show is open, I adore seeing students return with their families, watching their eyes light up with pride and excitement as they find their work,” Daniels said. “It brings them such joy to see their art on display in their Museum and I see that same joy sparked in our visitors and staff who pass through the Community Gallery halls. At surface level, it brings a smile to people’s faces but underneath it all, it’s a reminder of the ongoing legacy of art classes at TMA, shared by students past and present, old and young.”

The Museum offers studio art classes year-round for all ages and levels of experience in a wide variety of media. Learn more at
