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!

garnet-valley-high-school-class-of-2021-jessica-brewer-poem

Written by Jessica Brewer
Class of 2021

I wrote this as part of a project for school and thought I'd share!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Did you guys hear about Covid in the news?
I saw it's in China and on some cruise
I read it started from a guy and a bat
No way! I think I also saw some story like that
I just got a notification on my phone
It's the first Covid case in the US that’s known
Thats so scary but at least its not here
It’s not like we have anything to fear
Numbers are rising and it's starting to spread
We’re closing for a deep clean someone said
Then we get days off, that would be best
I know, right? We wouldn’t have to take this annoying test
Did you guys see the email that was sent out?
We have at least two weeks off, without a doubt
This is amazing! a super long spring break
Someone pinch me and make sure I'm awake
I’m kinda bored and ready to go back
Same, and I’m looking forward to lacrosse and track
Ugh, no spring sports and no junior prom
The rest of our year is on zoom dot com
At least we’re not seniors, I feel so bad
I know, I can’t imagine being a grad
Our senior year will be so fun
12 years of school all for this one
Well its September now and we’re still online
I thought for sure by now we’d be fine
I guess no Hoco or Friday night lights
No float dances or senior rights
Just get through this semester, we have the spring
I can’t believe this is all still a thing
I hate waking up and staring at the screen
This is supposed to be the year we remember as a teen
We should be walking the halls with joy and pride
Waving to old teachers, letting them know on which college we decide

We should be dressing up for the spirit event
And filling the yearbook with senior content
We should be with our friends that we have been beside
Since the 1st grade at the beginning of this ride
But instead we just stare at the names of these peers
That we may never see again after all these years
Now with only 4 months left for our class
We watch each week as monumental moments pass
In the time that remains, we look ahead
Hoping for memories beyond a zoom call from bed

Dear School Community,

Out of an abundance of caution, we are closing Garnet Valley High School tomorrow, Friday, March 13th for a deep cleaning. There will be no school or extracurricular activities for students on Friday and for the remainder of the weekend. Teachers and office staff are to work from home. Tonight we learned that one of our high school students was in proximity to an individual who tested positive for COVID 19. The high school administration is in communication with the family, and as of writing this email, I have a call and message into the PA Department of Health for further guidance.

As I've repeatedly stated, this situation is incredibly fluid, and I urge the school community to pay attention to their emails and check our website throughout the day tomorrow and for the rest of the weekend. As of tonight, our plan is to have a teacher inservice day on Monday, so there will be no school for all students grades K to 12.

I will also send a phone message in the morning, but I wanted to put out information tonight as well. I will be in touch with further information.

Dr. Marc Bertrando, Superintendent

GVPAA’s High School program presents Seussical the Musical, March 5th-7th!gvhs-seussical-gvpaa-tickets-salecindy-seussical-ghvs-gvpaa

Evening Performances @ 6:30pm
Matinee Performances @ 1:30pm

Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza that lovingly brings to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many "thinks." Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.

Tickets available at the door and at www.gvpaa.org
