Art IS Education at Foothill Gallery
Submitted By Winda Shimizu
ÒArt IS EducationÓ exhibition at Foothill Gallery features two-dimensional works by elementary school students from Hayward Unified School District from March 10 through April 22. Sixty creative pieces will be on display representing a variety of media from pastels, collage, acrylics, pencil, photography, and watercolors.
Every artwork emphasizes the importance of art in our schools and the incredible talents of students throughout the school district. March is Art IS Education month. The 2017 theme ÒCreative VoicesÓ invites Alameda County youth and community members to use their creative expression. Many free art events will take place at 12 county locations. Art IS Education is a project of the Alameda County Office of Education in partnership with the Alameda County Arts Commission.
Meet and greet the artists at the reception at Foothill Gallery on Saturday, March 11. During the afternoon reception visitors will be able to participate in a hands-on workshop in woodblock printing conducted by Hayward Arts Council (HAC) member Robert Wolff.
"Art IS Education" exhibition is a collaboration between HAC and Hayward Unified School District. Hayward Arts Council's mission is to stimulate community interest in the arts and encourage the participation of local artists in all kind of media.
