The WCASD Children’s Art Exhibit celebrates that art is alive and well in the West Chester Area School District and local parochial schools. The talent and diversity of thirty-three elementary students grades 3-5 and the creativity of our local school art teachers is on display for the eleventh year in a row.
The exhibit is hosted by Art Goes to School (AGTS), a volunteer organization that teaches art appreciation classes to elementary students throughout the district. The exhibit is sponsored by WCASD and the Chester County Art Association. The AGTS program director describes the event as “an opportunity to celebrate that children’s artwork is important and makes a difference. The faces of the children light up when they receive their awards.” Last year over 150 people attended the event including students, families, teachers, principals, directors of education, and patrons of our local art scene.
The Children’s Art Exhibit is kicked off with an invitation-only Artist Reception on Thursday, April 19th at the Exton Square Mall Studio of the Chester County Art Association. The exhibit will be open to the public until May 17th. The studio is located on the first floor of the Exton Square Mall between Boscov’s and H&M, open Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday 11:00am - 5:00pm.
