El Paso Museum of Art displays Socorro ISD students’ artwork


EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Some local high school students are showcasing their personalities through art this week.

The El Paso Museum of Art partnered up with Socorro ISD over the weekend to display the works from 28 students from Americas, Eastlake, El Dorado, Montwood, Pebble Hills, and Socorro high schools.

“All of the experiences, critiques, judgments, positivity, and negativity that I get in life, I use all of that energy to create vibrating energy as I’m looking towards the light,” Pebble Hills senior Andrea Soto explained of her artwork. “That’s who I am at the end of the day.”

This is the second year in a row SISD has had an exhibit at the 60-year-old museum, according to a news release.

Officials say Socorro is the only district to have its students’ art displayed at the Downtown El Paso museum.

“We have a strong relationship with them, and we are taking advantage of the opportunity they are allowing us,” SISD Visual Art Specialist Macka L. Jones said. “It is part of our commitment to provide our students endless opportunities to succeed in all areas of their education.”
