Welcome to the 2021 Garnet Valley High School Virtual Art Exhibition! This year we are featuring over 500 works of art across grades 9-12 which represent a sampling of our courses:

Art & Design

Color & 2D

Digital Media & Graphic Design

Intro to Photography

Intro to Filmmaking & Animation

Pottery 1 & 2

Sculpture & 3D Design

Intro to Drawing & Painting

Art Seminar A & B

AP Art

Our GVHS art students have been working hard this year while overcoming the challenges of virtual and hybrid studio art.

Artwork is located in 5 Galleries: one gallery for our AP Art Seniors, three Padlet galleries for 2D & 3D work, and one gallery for films.

***Please be patient as some galleries may take a while to load. In general, you may find it easier to view the galleries on a desktop or laptop computer instead of your phone.

April 14, 2021 was our first ever outdoor signing day and the weather cooperated just enough.  The below link will take you to pictures from the event.  Our photographer today was Tommy Smith (T-Bone) who graciously donated his time to memorialize our event.
Congratulations to your kids and your families!
Go Jags!

News-O-Matic, a children's news website, recently interviewed Bethel Springs's 4th grade teacher and GV Trailblazer's coordinator, Brian Quindlen about Bird Safe Philly and the Lights Out Program!

These programs are part of a nationwide effort to turn off city skylines during spring and fall migration to reduce bird collisions with buildings at night. Click the link below to read the full article and visit the site, which includes photos of birds taken at BSES under the “Slideshow” feature, along with other cool interactive features!
