The exhibit will display over 500 pieces created by local K-12 students. A combination of paintings, drawings, sculptures, and other mediums will be incorporated. The Area Schools Art Show is done every year to thank the art teachers in the community for allowing C of O art education students to teach in their classrooms.

“When the artists are standing with their parents, grandparents, and siblings at the opening, it’s so joyful,” said Anne Allman, professor of art. “It is a celebration of art for the students in our community.”
