Thank You

I don't even know where to begin with thank yous. Every time I think that the list is complete I think of someone who should be added. I feel humbled and grateful and full of appreciation when I think about our children and young adults and their capacity to create art and evoke joy and wonder. I truly appreciate those who believe that art has a place and that art is important and that all of our students are deserving of it.....that art in its many, many, many forms stretches us across the universe.

Our students make art. A lot of beautiful and amazing art. We, the creators of the citywide festival, seek to celebrate our students, their art and those helping our students live, learn and create every day.

Submissions, yes.

Small Sampling

This is a very small sampling of the artwork of students grades K-12.

Look for a flurry of digital display in downtown Gloucester starting the week of April vacation.

Look for art where you least expect it, too.
