As a part of our mission to support the arts, one of our favorite opportunities is the elementary schools children art show. For some children, it is the first chance to have their art judged, and it is a major accomplishment the children to have their work displayed in a professional gallery.
Each year, teachers from every Yorktown elementary school choose a selection of student works to be hung in the gallery. 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 produce their best creations.
Each child receives a certificate of merit for his or her participation. We hope the experience inspires the children to explore the world of art, and develop an appreciation of art and all it offers.
Please check back in early 2019 for the Annual York County Elementary Schools Art Show details.
