The quiet atmosphere of air conditioning mingled with the smells of paints and paper. From March 25 to April 11, Coppell residents were invited to view the free Advanced Placement studio showcase located at the Coppell Arts Center. 

The work featured 51 artists from AP drawing, AP 2D design, and AP 3D design. Students in AP art courses are required to create a portfolio of work centered around sustained investigation questions. The question serves as a concept to explore a topic of their choosing. The art on display is a small selection of their overall portfolio. 

“My artwork was about portraying and displaying mental illnesses,” CHS junior AP drawing student Sadie Harp said. “It’s been cool to [work on this] especially in-person because we’ve just been experimenting a lot.” 

The art was placed in the Mr. Cooper Group Lobby Gallery. The gallery serves as the entrance to the arts center and is in partnerships with the Coppell Arts Council, Coppell Creatives and the Coppell Arts Center Foundation to bring art to North Texas.
