Student Art Exhibit
about the exhibit
The West Nebraska Arts Center, with the support of the Nebraska Arts Council, the Nebraska Cultural Endowment, North Platte Valley Artist Guild, Panhandle Shrine Club, and Platte Valley Companies is pleased to present an exciting collection of original art from After School Art Program student.
Our youth are future artists and audience for the arts. The goal of WNAC’s seven month After School Art Program is to offer visual arts education to grades 1-6 using the Nebraska State Standards for Fine Arts Education as a guide. Students will develop skills to create, present, respond to, and connect art with the human experience.
Through exploration of media—painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, sculpture, applied design, and technology—they will begin to develop an understanding of the principles of art and elements of design, deepening their expressive and critical faculties, honing their art skills, and cultivating their imagination.
Each child will create a portfolio of their work throughout the program and have the opportunity to participate in a gallery exhibit during the month of April.
On Mondays Larry Delgado taught 1st-3rd grade and on Tuesdays, Rod Clause taught 4th-6th grade.
The ASAP Student art exhibit can be viewed Thursday April 4 – 28, 2019. Opening reception is Sunday, April 7th, 2-4 p.m. there will be treats and refreshments.
Visit the gallery Tuesday - Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Closed Mondays. Gallery admission is FREE and open to the public.
