In April elementary and middle schools throughout Walworth County are invited to participate in an Art Show. This show is at the Elkhorn Area Middle School on a Sunday afternoon. This year’s show is Sunday, April 17, 2015 at 1 pm. Teacher set up begins at noon.
The art teacher from each school may submit up to ten pieces of art for the exhibit. Names of the participants are forwarded to the Walworth County Arts Council prior to the show. Certificates of participation are prepared for presentation at the show.
Each school sets up their display table prior to the beginning of the program. The art teacher is responsible for displaying the various student projects. Teachers may bring easels to use in addition to the table that is provided. At the program the art teacher is introduced and the teacher introduces each student who then shares their work with the audience. Immediately following this presentation, a school group picture is taken. A copy of the picture is sent to the school for any publicity they wish to pursue.
This event is an excellent opportunity to highlight some of the outstanding artwork of your students. The public is invited for this program. In the past attendance has varied between 300 to 500 people.
