Thank you to everyone who came out to the 40th Anniversary Art Exhibition at Marburn Academy!

Marburn Academy partnered with world renowned artist Paul Hamilton, to create an art exhibit saluting 40 years of educating students who learn differently. Under the guidance of Artist In Residence Hamilton, and art faculty member Sally Sayre, 34 students from all divisions created original works of art celebrating individuality, creative expression, and the artist in themselves. Additionally, students produced two collaborative installations. The "Pillars of Excellence" is a permanent outdoor sculpture addition to the piazza and is made of individual panels painted by each student in the program. In "Earth Song," students painted concentric circles representing their interpretation of the earth's core and its many layers.

Special thanks to the Belford Family, Hammond Harkins Gallery, Marjorie Garek, Sally Sayre, Samantha Savage and Rod Savage.

They then made an "Instagram post" that featured a histogram they created to display the data. Students were able to "like" and "comment" on the symmetry, trends, and interesting facts they noticed and learned from each other's projects. ... See MoreSee Less

Middle Division students created scale models of the sizes of our planets using Play-Doh. Starting out with a large clump of Play-Doh, each student received a portion that would represent their planet. The clay planets together created a scale model of the solar system and visual representation of our planet compared to others. ... See MoreSee Less
