Arts in Education Spring Exhibit

The Arts in Education Spring Exhibit promotes local school art programs.  This is an exhibit and competition to promote Macon County and surrounding area art programs in the schools.  Teachers use this opportunity to have the students not only enter the show but to help hang the artwork for the experience.  There will be no fee for schools to enter.  Up to 30 pieces of artwork may be displayed.  An 8’x8’ piece of cardboard is provided on which to mount the artwork.  A table with cloth is also provided on which to display 3D artwork.  Schools are encouraged to bring signage about their school and the program.  Ribbons will be awarded in categories of Computer/photography, painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics/crafts, mixed media and miscellaneous.
