York County Elementary Schools Art Show

York County School Division
Elementary Schools

As a part of our mission statement to support the arts, our favorite time is the children’s art show. This year we are hosting our annual York County Elementary Children’s Art Show March 5 to 26th at On the Hill Gallery.

Each teacher from every elementary school has chosen a selection of student’s work to be hung in a professional gallery setting. The exhibit will open on March 5th accompanied by a reception.

Each York County Elementary School is invited to participate in this exhibit.

Art teachers from each school select the best of several mediums to be displayed. From painting and drawing to sculpture and mixed media, the children bring their best. Children receive a certificate of merit for their participation. We hope that this experience inspires the children to explore the world of art and develop an appreciation of art and all that it offers.


Last year we were amazed at the talent shown by these emerging artists, this year proposes to be even better. The children will have their work hung in a real gallery setting just as we do for our artists. This is an opportunity to experience the beautiful work our future artists are creating. A reception will be held on March 5th from 2-4 pm. If you cannot attend the reception, please stop by during the time their work is on display and support the children in their endeavors.

The show is located at On the Hill Gallery 402 Main Street in Historic Yorktown, and is open Tuesday through Sunday. The York County Arts Commission, Virginia Arts Commission and the National Endowment of the Arts support the Yorktown Arts Foundation and On the Hill Gallery in its endeavors to encourage the arts in our community.
