Service Learning Projects


Throughout the 2015-16 school year, the 8th grade art students collaborated with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and learned about their mission of  “fighting bigotry and discrimination and protecting civil rights.”  Students visited the ADL’s outdoor art exhibit and were inspired to create art that is representative of the ADL mission statement while addressing issues that middle school students face.  Taking this unit of study one step further, the art students created their own service-learning project to promote civil rights and to help end discrimination within the Omaha community. The Beveridge students teamed up with Table Grace Café, a non-profit restaurant, which welcomes ALL people regardless of their socioeconomic status. At Table Grace, there are no prices on the menu, instead, patrons pay what they can or they can volunteer to help in the kitchen.  Beveridge students visited and dined at Table Grace Café. While eating at cafe, students talked to an eclectic group of Omaha residents, from businessmen and woman, to clergy, to homeless customers.   Students made cupcakes to sell, collected food, gathered the end of the season harvest from a truck farm, baked cookies, served lunch, collected money urging others to share, and finally created the art installation to share with the community for Table Grace.  (See picture above.)

Installations


Beveridge 7th grade Art students studied the work of Keith Haring and discussed how art can spread a positive message.  Beveridge students created the three dimensional statues in front of Beveridge Magnet School that symbolize the uniqueness of each student at Beveridge Magnet School for Global Studies and the Arts.

Bancroft Art Gallery Show- Exquisite Collaboration



The Beveridge art students and Art Club members presented an Art show entitled "Exquisite Collaboration" on January 13, 2017 at the Bancroft Art Gallery. It was our biggest show yet, with 430 canvases from 9 of the 12 middle schools. We had 281 people shuffle through the gallery on Friday night and during that 2 hours we sold 20% of the show! That's very impressive! Throughout gallery hours we had another 20 or so people come and purchase artwork. It was a great show overall.


If you were not able to attend, don't fret! Below is a link to a 360 degree photo of the set up. You should be able to sort of move around the photo and zoom in on works (to a point) to give students who were not able to attend an idea of what the show looks like. Be sure to check it out!
