Art work from students throughout the county will be on
display through May 28 at the San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) main
The 56 pieces of art were submitted by students at seven elementary
and middle schools and include colored pencil, tempera paint, collage and other
mixed mediums. The exhibition was organized by the San Diego County Art Education Association and SDCOE’s Visual and Performing Arts Unit.
There were about twice as many submissions this year as
there were last year.
The art is on display in Building 3 on the SDCOE campus at
6401 Linda Vista Road in San Diego. It will be up until May 28, when there will
be a reception for parents, teachers and students at 5:30 p.m.
Having the work on display is good for students as well as
employees and visitors, said Russ Sperling, visual and performing arts
coordinator with the SDCOE.
It’s a great opportunity for students to be able to display
their art , which can help encourage them to create more. Meanwhile, the art helps
spruce up the building, he said.
