Several Lancaster County students, from kindergarten to eighth grade, can say that their art is in a professional art gallery.
The Lancaster County Art Association recently debuted its collection of children’s works at an exhibition called “Elementary & the Middle”. Judges awarded first to third places, as well as honorary awards in each class.
Some schools represented include Sacred Heart School, Quarryville Primary, Lancaster Mennonite, Octorara Junior High School and Hans Herr Elementary, among others.
All materials will be exhibited until April 24.
The Lancaster County Art Association is not the only gallery to feature student work. The Demut Museum and the Lancaster Museum of Art are also accepting student works until April 24.
The Lancaster Museum of Art presents works to reward young Lancaster County artists from 7th to 12th graders. Fine art is made using several types of media, from computer art to jewelry and photography.
The Demut Museum also features works by students in grades 7-12, but instead of the regional Scholastic Art Awards. See the art samples included in the exhibit here.
Admission to the Demut Museum and the Lancaster Museum of Art is donated and a $ 5 donation is offered. Admission to the Lancaster County Art Association exhibition is free.
