Most students see their artwork in the classrooms and hallways of their own schools. With the Aurora Public Schools Traveling Art Show, elementary through high school students take their art on the road, displaying their works from libraries to the capitol.
For the past six years Aurora Public Schools students have showcased their artwork at various locations throughout the metro area as part of the APS Traveling Art Show. From April 7 through May 1, student artwork will be on display at the state capitol. This is the third year student work will be displayed at the capitol.
The display shows 20 to 30 pieces of art from students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. "Our APS students display extraordinary talent in the area of visual arts. The Traveling Art Show has meant a lot in terms of recognizing outstanding student achievement and reaching out into the community, "said Dalton art teacher Janet Moore.
APS is the only metro district that promotes the arts and art education through a traveling art show that changes venues every month. Each year in November the display opens with a reception that features the artists.
Artwork is on display now through April 7 at Borders Bookstore, 9515 E. County Line Rd, Englewood. After leaving the capitol, the artwork will be on display at Aurora Municipal Building from May 1 through May 26.
