MAEA art show at WCC features some of the outstanding work by students at Ann Arbor Public Schools

The works of art by 51 AAPS students are on display now through Friday, Feb. 24 at Washtenaw Community College’s Morris Lawrence Building.

The Michigan Art Education Association (MAEA) offers its teacher members the unique opportunity to showcase outstanding artwork produced by students from all regions of the state of Michigan. 

This annual show is a great way to celebrate student artists from all across the state, said Eberwhite Elementary art teacher Sarah George.

“Unlike most of our other shows, this art show is juried and sponsored by Blick Art Materials,” she noted. “Artworks that were selected by judges from each Region will move on to be judged at the state show.”

Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Parking for the art gallery at the Morris Lawrence Building is available in Lot 1.

“Congratulations again to all students and teachers on their hard work and efforts to create a fantastic show,” said George. “Our students produced beautiful, powerful, and unique works of art that reflect the high quality of instruction by our MAEA members.”

Some of the featured artwork will then move on to the MAEA K-12 Art State Show hosted by the Ann Arbor Public Library downtown from Sunday, March 12th through Friday, April 7th, with an opening reception on Saturday, March 18th at 1 p.m. 

Three examples of art by AAPS students featured now at WCC.
