Art Works by Students of the
Clarke County School District 

On view: November 11 - January 13, 2018 
Reception: Saturday, November 11, 2 - 4 pm


Every other year, the Arts Center hosts hundreds of works created by our future generation. An amazing team of public school art teachers work with student artists, in grades Pre-K through 12, encouraging them to use their experience and creativity to investigate a theme through painting, fiber, printmaking, sculpture and more.

This year, we are so excited to have the students of Clarke Central HS Honors Chamber Strings performing at the reception, 2 pm! 

Full-color catalogs picturing every work in the exhibit are for sale in the Gallery Shop.
