FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE.
WHAT: STUDENT ART IS WELL TRAVELED

STUDENT ART IS WELL TRAVELED

Most students only get to see their artwork placed in the classrooms and hallways of their own schools, but a select group of students will see their artwork displayed in Colorado’s capitol.   

For the past eight years Aurora Public Schools has helped sponsor a traveling art show that gives the community a chance to view the works of talented young student artists from throughout the district. 

From April 2 -13 visitors to Colorado’s state capitol will be able to view student artwork chosen as part of this year’s traveling art show. Twenty to 30 art pieces from around the district, created by artists from kindergarten to high school seniors, will be proudly displayed.   

APS is the only metro district that promotes the arts and art education through a traveling art show that moves to new locations every month.  

Artwork is on display now through April 2 at Borders Bookstore, 9515 E. County Line Rd., Englewood.  After leaving the capitol, the student artwork moves to Sixth Ave. Elementary School, 560 Vaughn St., until May 1.  From May 1-25 the art will be featured at the Aurora Municipal Building, 15151 E. Alameda Pkwy.
