(SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) An art show focusing on students’ diverse intelligence takes place Wednesday, May 19, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at California State University, San Bernardino.
The Abstract Minds Spring 2010 Spatial Intelligence Art Show takes place in the Santos Manuel Student Union at CSUSB, 5500 University Parkway, San Bernardino. Students in grades 9-12 from throughout San Bernardino County are involved.
“Abstract Minds is an organization that aims to foster the growth and development of economically disadvantaged youth,” said Shalay Young, president of Abstract Minds. “Our mission is to promote the diverse intelligence types of students by allowing them to express their creative and artistic talents.”
Young said the students were supplied with art canvases, and encouraged to use any medium that would show up well on the canvas. Their works will also focus on any subject of interest to the student artist, so long as no vulgar or nude images are included.
“By allowing students to showcase projects where they are especially intelligent or gifted, Abstract Minds hopes to ultimately improve high school graduation rates by encouraging more economically disadvantaged youth to strive for enrollment in institutions of higher education, and ultimately, helping them become self sufficient through a career,” Young said.
“The organization also encourages the students to become involved in their communities. To accomplish these goals, we offer students outlets to extend their learning opportunities, we help them promote their best efforts, and we reinforce personal respect,” Young said.
