Art teachers educate in many different ways, one of which is modeling what it means to be a professional artist.  When artists choose work for an exhibition, they anticipate showing to an audience. In preparing for this show, each teacher thought about their students’ artwork and selected only one piece to display. This student then has the honor of showing beside his/her art teacher in a professional setting.

Throughout history, art students have been modeling and looking up to artists that have come before them. Each one of these teachers can say they have done this for their art teachers. We encourage our students to keep searching for role models and continually take the time to be an artist.

All are encouraged to stop by and see what talented students and teachers we have in our schools!
