Helen Day Art Center: Student Art Show 2012


Helen Day Art Center’s Student Art Show exhibits emerging talent in Lamoille Valley

Opens Thursday, May 3rd, 3:00-5:00 p.m.

On Thursday May 3rd at 3:00 p.m. the gallery doors will open on a spectacular group of artwork from local students. Stowe Elementary, Middle, and High school art students will exhibit their work along with this year’s guest: Waitsfield Elementary School. Complimentary servings of Ice Cream will be served thanks to Stowe Ice Cream.

Students, inspired by visits to Helen Day Art Center exhibitions and by their teachers, build skills in multiple media while simultaneously finding their expressive voice. The evidence of this ongoing process is amazing and it lines the walls of the Center which produces this exhibition annually to honor the talent of these students.
