As the Featured Artists for December, we are delighted to present the 3rd annual “School Art Show”, displaying the creative talents of budding student artists, grades K-8, from Cañon City and Pueblo West schools. The students have created works of art in a variety of media, both 2 and 3 dimensional, and many will be in attendance to proudly represent their work. Please join us in congratulating and encouraging the students and their art teachers, who have worked so hard on this impressive exhibit! Participating schools and their art teachers are: Harrison Middle School - Heidi Hubinger; Canon City Middle School - Andy Vetter; Pueblo West Middle School - Konnie Chace; McKinley Elementary School - Suzanne Cooper; Harrison Elementary School - Suzanne Cooper; Mountain View Core Knowledge School - Meg Olsen; and Canon Exploratory School - Terri Wrona. Kudos to our schools for preserving art in their curriculum! Open daily, The Artists’ Gallery’s “Holiday Boutique”, is currently brimming with quality, affordable, one-of-a-kind gift items.
