Student Art Shows
Through the Public Education Foundation’s Artists with Kids program, students have the opportunity to exhibit their art in art shows around the community, and gain real-life experience planning and curating exhibits through gallery internships.
PEF has embarked on an exciting new partnership with the Rogers Art Loft to showcase local student artists and connect them with working professionals in the arts field. This is the first step as PEF rebuilds the Artists with Kids program to inspire CCSD students to express their creativity and foster a lifelong engagement in the arts by creating experiences that connect them with community artists. Student interns, in consultation with the Humanities Scholar and gallery director, will curate and manage gallery shows at the Rogers Studio Gallery.
Entangled was the first Artists with Kids show at the Rogers Studio Gallery, hosted in partnership with the Rogers Art Loft. Artwork featured in the show was created by Clark County School District students.
Christine Pavesich, photography and studio art instructor at Liberty High School, serves as the show curator and engages a team of student interns who are responsible for the gallery shows. Student interns gain experience in maintaining a gallery show by:
- Matting and framing student artwork
- Creating inventory, artist statements, and name and price tags
- Hanging, hosting, and taking down the show
