All Saints’ Episcopal School of Fort Worth is delighted to have the opportunity to showcase the artistic works of our Upper School, Middle School and Lower School art students, photography students, alumni, and art educators at BRIT in the Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall from November 3 – December 15, 2017. The art pieces express botanical subject matter in a variety of styles, including Photorealism, Impressionism, and Abstraction. Works will reflect a wide range of media, including pencil, pastel, watercolor, acrylic and encaustic.

The All Saints’ Episcopal School of Fort Worth’s Visual Arts Program aims to motivate students to explore essential questions, which will result in developing and expanding visual perception, aesthetic awareness, historic perspective, artistic skills and techniques and critical thinking practices. Through a sequential, developmental curriculum alignment, emphasizing critical thinking, students have the opportunity to learn and analyze works of art while gaining the skills of fine artisanship. The overall objective is for students to emerge with refined technical skills, a well-informed appreciation of the expression of others, and confidence to cultivate art reflecting their artistic visions.

About Exhibits

BRIT is fortunate to have two exhibit spaces, the elegant Madeline R. Samples Exhibit Hall and the intimate Welcome Center exhibit space, in which to display a variety of art from both well-known and emerging local artists. BRIT joins with the rest of the Fort Worth arts community twice a year and participates in spring and fall Gallery Nights.
