The show will feature the works of students from third through twelfth grade, representing three Radford City schools. The works of these young artists were created in the classroom where the students learned about a variety of art movements, styles, and mediums.
Works from Belle Heth Elementary School were created under the direction of Michelle Saunders and Ashley Dunbar. Kristy Bryant directed the work of students from Dalton Intermediate School. Working with the students from Radford High School was Savannah Leeman.
The student artists of Radford High School have gained various honors for their artwork including exhibition at the Radford University Tyler Gallery as well as awards in the Regional Scholastic Art competition. Under Savannah Leeman, students have worked on various projects using a variety of media.
Museum Director Scott Gardner said, “We are so excited to once again partner with Radford City Public Schools to showcase the dynamic artwork of Radford’s youngest citizens.” Gallery coordinator Lauri Murphy said, “As a student, to have your artwork on public display is so special, and we at Glencoe are thrilled to be able to showcase their hard work and offer this show to our community.”
