March 2024

Oh, what a show! With over 500 works of art contributed by nearly 280 students and staff from 37 different countries, Clonlara School’s 2024 art show was truly a global celebration.

Our six galleries showcased a range of artistic techniques using a variety of media, including acrylic paint, crayon, pencil, and watercolor, as well repurposed materials, papier-mâché, pixels, and more!

Whether or not you were able to attend, we invite you to “step into” the galleries of our 2024 Global Art Show now and browse them at your own pace. We hope you leave them feeling as inspired we do.

2024 Preview

3D & Mixed Media

Students get creative within the mixed media genre, combining a variety of materials into one work. 3D art in this gallery includes sculpture, pottery, forged metal, and papier-mâché.


Graphite, charcoal, ink, colored pencil, and other dry media work make up this gallery.

Digital Art

Students create and/or manipulate artistic media using technology to form digital 3D sculptures, photo manipulations, and pixel art.

Photography & Video

Clonlara’s photographers capture everything from the smallest details to expansive landscapes, snapping pictures of flowers, pets, people, and more. This year, computer animation and stop motion video add a fun new dimension to this gallery!


Watercolor, acrylic, oil, tempura paints, and pastels set the stage for a rich viewing experience in this gallery.

Performing Arts

Clonlara musicians, dancers, and singers share their talents in a selection of short video clips.

Meet Ronja: This Year’s Featured Artist

Ronja, age 17, is an off-campus student living in Costa Rica. She creates shockingly realistic artwork inspired by animals and nature. You’ll see her incredible work on our 2024 Global Art Show event banners, flyers, and communications.

Ronja went from drawing mythical creatures as a beginning artist to creating realistic portraits of dogs, foxes, rabbits, sloths, and more! Through experimenting with graphite pencils, colored pencils, paint, and other mediums, she has developed her own techniques and methods. In 2023, Ronja gave a speech about her art, taught online art classes, and appeared in two magazines! Now, she’s working on making high-quality prints of her art and opening her online art store.

If you would like to explore your artistic talents, Ronja has some advice for you: “Don’t overthink it. Just go for it, have fun creating, and don’t expect your first piece to be perfect.” And remember: “Practice makes progress!”
