March was a very busy month in the art room! Our school has an Open House/Learning Fair on the first Sunday of the month, which means lots of artwork up for display. Fortunately, I had a lot of work ready to go since some had just come back from the Cross Point exhibit, so this was an easy show to hang at school. Adding some fresh art completed during the winter months gave me plenty of student work for this final exhibit of the school year at K12 Gallery & TEJAS.
Twelve area Catholic schools are participating in the exhibit, which runs through the month of April. At the opening reception on March 25, several of our students won awards, which is always fun! I especially like that the gallery staff doesn't use traditional "first, second, third" place awards Instead they award Creative Thinkers, Colorful Design, and similar such compliments directly related to the art work. There are "Best in Grade" but other than that, it's all about the art.
The evening also included performances by various musical groups, including a trio from my school's band. All in all, a special evening for many talented young artists!
