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.

In 2022, PEF is embarking 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.

Art Shows

“Split Decision”, the first art show of 2023, will take place at the Rogers Studio Gallery from January 26-30.

For the first Artists With Kids show of the 2022-2023 school year, the Del Sol Visual Arts program presented What’s Your Fire? at the Rogers Studio Gallery, in partnership with the Public Education Foundation and the Rogers Art Loft.

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.

In the Art-Cycling Recycled Art Show, Clark County School District students create art from everyday items and give them a new life. All items used in the show are provided by the PEF Teacher Superstore (formerly the Teacher EXCHANGE).

VOICE 2021 is the 17th Annual CCSD Secondary Arts Juried Student Competition. Students created art focused on Contemporary Issues: Cultural Inclusion and Resistance, Self-Discovery: Coming of Age and Finding My Place, and Conceptual Surrealism: Fantastical Life.

The Public Education Foundation believes strongly in the power of art to help students process their feelings. The “What Does 2020 Mean to You?” show allowed students to explore their emotions around the COVID-19 pandemic and school building closures through art.

Gallery Internships

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
