Over 500 pieces of student work shine at Artscape

This year’s Artscape exhibition, which ran from March 2-17, featured a wide variety of creative pieces made by student artists. Artscape is an exhibition of artwork by students from ASIJ and other international and Japanese schools across the Kanto Plain. It is held annually at the National Children’s Castle (Kodomo no Shiro) in Aoyama. This exhibition is designed to be more than just an art show—the philosophy of Artscape is to coordinate international sharing and expression through the arts.

The mission of Artscape is to “create an environment for the public exhibition of selected student artworks and create an opportunity for an international art dialogue between students, teachers, the participating school communities and the Japanese public.”  This year, drawings, paintings, monoprints, photography, pottery, glass and computer graphics by ASIJ students from grades 6-12 were on display, along with over 500 pieces of work from 13 different schools. (Rebecca Sentgeorge & Milan Claudio, MS/HS Art)
