As part of Youth Arts Month, join the Stanislaus COE in Making Arts Learning Visible!
The purpose of the PK-12th Grade Art Showcase is to display the creative abilities of students in Pre-Kindergarten – 12th grades during Youth Arts Month (March). Student artwork can be made in-class, at-school, at a community event, in an extra-curricular setting, or at home. Teachers are encouraged (but not required) to send student artist statements along with artwork. Student artists statements will be displayed as space allows.
