Our Hot Springs Junior Academy held a first ever Digital Art Show with over 120 student art pieces on display. The student-led event was a collaboration between our EAST (Education Accelerated by Service and Technology) and Art Programs. Free snacks and coffee were provided by volunteers from our FCCLA and donations from Red Light Roastery. In total, over 150 students were involved in the production.

Art show guests were instructed to download the mobile phone applications Sketchfab and HP Reveal from the Apple App Store prior to entering the exhibits in order to fully view and experience the art pieces. After opening the apps, the guests were told to center each art piece on their phone screens within the program's crosshairs. Once the app sensed the artwork, other features of the pieces were revealed.

Previously invisible features of the art included colors that had been removed from black and white mandala drawings, superimposed video clips of creative processes and short clay animation videos shown on blank pieces of paper beside dioramas with the figures from the videos.

Artwork was judged by representatives from our local Mid-America Science Museum. All winners and honorable mention pieces will be available for viewing and interaction in the Tinkering Studio at the Museum until February.
