County school students are going to have a grand showcase for their artwork starting this week at Westfield Annapolis mall.
The special show is designed to showcase “artistic achievements from emerging artists throughout Anne Arundel County,” according to a release from school district officials.
That means there will be nearly 2,000 student pieces of art on display from Wednesday to May 23. All of the pieces are part of the county schools’ visual arts program.
Students will be honored at an open house from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on May 17.
“Exhibiting artwork is an essential part of the art program experience,” county school’s Coordinator of Art Suzanne Owens said in the release. “By displaying artwork, students are shown the value that we, the school and public community, place on their hard work and effort in the production of quality artwork. It also provides an opportunity for students and teachers to share their successes with the community, families, and peers.”
