Be sure to check out the amazing student art on display at local libraries and businesses in our town right now through Alameda Education Founation’s Art Across the Island program.

Much of the artwork is based on lessons that integrate science and art. At Bay Farm library, for instance, viewers can see the background coding that goes into digital art at the installation from Alameda High School’s CTE computer science class. See Spot Run is exhibiting animal drawings by Otis Elementary 5th graders. Other displays include depictions of local birds that incorporate environmental science, pastel and paper renditions of brain neurons, and topographical mapping that reflects the soils, rocks and landforms curriculum, and collages depicting women in natural settings in African countries. 

Since 2016, when AEF initiated Art Across the Island, the non-profit’s volunteers have put up more than 4000 works of student art at venues including the City’s libraries, Rhythmix Culural Works, and Lilac Boutique.
