Jailhouse Art

The Yuma High School art program will be hosting its annual end of year art exhibition “Jailhouse Art,” on May 20, 2024, in the Snider Auditorium hallway.

“I’m excited to show others what I’ve created and worked hard on,” YHS Advanced Placement (AP) Art and Design student Leslie Romero said. “I decided to showcase a painting of a beach at night that I worked on in my AP art class and I chose it because I like nature.”

The “Jailhouse Art” exhibition will include 3-dimensional sculptures, paintings, and drawings that students have chosen to showcase from what they worked on throughout the year. All students from Art 1, 2, 3, and AP, will be participating in the exhibition.

“I want everyone to come see what students have been making and the ideas they’ve been exploring,” YHS art teacher Jillian Vanhorn said. “It’s a great chance for students to showcase their work to family, friends, and members of the community.”

The exhibition is free to the public from 5-7 p.m. and Yuma High students will also have an early-access opportunity to check out the exhibition during their fifth and sixth period classes.
