In order to honor the Museum’s unique beginning, Student Art has remained an important element. The Museum hosts a yearly Student Art Competition and adds classroom projects to its Student Art Collection throughout the year. Art helps students to understand and translate the complexities of the Holocaust and to express their understanding in enlightening, clever, and creative ways.
This year’s Student Art Competition is going to be based on the concept of Liberation in order to commemorate the 70th year of concentration camp liberation. Students will have two quotes; one for elementary students and another more complex quote for secondary students. Look for more great examples to come in late January.
Below are incredible examples of Student Art from area elementary, middle, and high school students.
