With a current enrollment of 794 students, Contoocook Valley (ConVal) Regional High School in Peterborough serves nine towns and 250 square miles in the Monadnock Region of New Hampshire. Towns comprising the ConVal District are Antrim, Bennington, Dublin, Francestown, Greenfield, Hancock, Peterborough, Sharon and Temple. The total population of the nine towns is approximately 17,000.

The ConVal Visual Arts course offerings include 2D Studio Art, 3D Studio Art, Ceramics, and Aesthetics & Ideas. Students may enroll in any of these classes for credit, as many times as they wish. All classes are heterogeneously grouped—mixed grade, mixed level. Emphasize is placed on process, art practice, and the inherent value of artistic growth over time.

Students participating in this exhibition are either enrolled in AP Studio Art this year or are Seniors who have shown a commitment to their art making practice at ConVal. The Visual Arts curriculum is guided by five core competences designed to build students’ creative capacities: Sketchbook Practice, Studio Practice, Craftsmanship, Portfolio Work, and Reflection. Visual Arts faculty members strive to teach students how to engage with the world in thoughtful and dynamic ways, how to express one’s affections and concerns clearly and powerfully, and how to make works with care, attention, and intention.
