Show celebrates elementary student art

Work from 108 Jeffco elementary schools represented

Posted

Red Rocks Community College was swarming with budding artists and their families Feb. 22 for the opening reception of the 2019 Elementary Jeffco Schools Foundation Art Exhibit.

“When they're here, they feel like rock stars,” Rick Medina, visual arts teacher at Peak Expeditionary and Stevens Elementary, said of the students showing art work. “When they know in art class that they have a chance of showing their work in a public place like this, I think it pushes them to want to do their best.”

Select pieces of art from 108 elementary schools throughout Jeffco are on display at the college until March 14.
