The Young Voices Art Exhibit opens Friday evening, February 15th

All art students of Maureen’s are strongly encouraged to participate. We will be meeting after school on 4 to 6 days in late January and early February to prepare for the exhibit. The students will be expected to choose the work that will be in the show; frame and title their pieces, write a short bio and artist statement, prepare a 2-minute gallery talk about their art and help plan and prepare the show and opening reception. It’s an incredible opportunity for the kids to participate in some of the behind-the-scenes work that goes into an exhibition. And they will gain lots of life skills in the process!
