Eight Artworks by Plano ISD Students Selected for State Capitol's Youth Art Month Exhibit
February 26, 2016
Eight artworks by Plano ISD students were entered for consideration in the Texas Art Education Association's 2016 Youth Art Month State Capitol Exhibit, and all eight were selected. The exhibit showcases pre-k through 12th grade student art from approximately 50 school districts across the state.
The art will be exhibited in two locations: the South Gallery at the State Capitol from February 28 through March 5, and the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum from March 6 through April 3. Students will be honored at a state reception and awards ceremony on April 3 at the Bob Bullock Museum.
"At a local level, the selections this year were very challenging due to exquisite work entered from all grade levels across the district," said Plano ISD Visual Arts Coordinator Laura Grundler. "Students should be especially proud to have been submitted for consideration, as we can only send eight pieces, as well as being chosen for the capitol exhibit. This is truly exceptional."
Congratulations to the following students and their teachers.
