The Carmel Arts Council is pleased to announce that Carmel High School students, sophomore Alex Thomas and junior Caroline Armstrong, were selected among several candidates to produce the Carmel Arts Council’s summer art show.
Awarded as Student Curators, these students will begin a series of instructional meetings to learn how to plan and construct an art exhibition. These student curators will be mentored in this process by Mrs. Harriet Warkel, a Carmel Arts Council member and an Indianapolis Art Museum curator with nearly 30 years of experience.
The CAC’s student curator’s art exhibition, which features high school art, will open on July 8, 2017 in the Carmel Arts Council’s Children’s Art Gallery located at 40 West Main Street and continue through August 27.
We look forward to seeing everyone visit to acknowledge their education, dedication and enthusiasm in the Arts- AND viewing a Gallery of outstanding Art by our High School students, of course!

An art exhibition created by art students from Woodbrook Elementary will open in the Carmel Arts Council’s Children’s Art Gallery on November 4. This exhibition is the result of a project based on the Amazon rainforest.
Art students from Woodbrook began this school year studying many different aspects of the Amazon rainforest; its location, climate and the various types of plants and animals that occupy the rainforest.
Following these lessons the students focused on creating a specific component of the rainforest or an animal. Some of the subjects depicted ranged from the rainforest landscape, to poison dart frogs, sloths, snakes, birds and butterflies. In assembling this exhibit, the students worked with a variety of media to capture and create the subjects of their art projects.
The Woodbrook Elementary Exhibit opens in the Carmel Arts Council’s Children’s Art Gallery November 4 and closes November 27.
