Art from the Schools 2023
Spring is coming early to SVAC’s Elizabeth de C. Wilson Museum, in an annual celebration of PreK-12th grade student art that will be on view from Saturday, March 4 through Saturday, April 22, 2023. Art from the Schools 2023 will begin with a special week highlighting the region’s most advanced young artists. The High School Spotlight opens Saturday, March 4 and runs through Saturday, March 11.* This exhibition will feature work by Long Trail School’s International Baccalaureate Students as well as advanced art students from Arlington Memorial High School, Burr and Burton Academy, and Poultney High School.

*After a short gallery closing from March 12–17 to reorganize, work by hundreds of PreK-12 students will be on the walls through Saturday, April 22.

Art from the Schools allows students the meaningful learning experience of presenting in a real art gallery, and it brings guests the joy of seeing the vibrant creativity of young artists at work. The Wilson Museum will be filled with drawings, paintings, and sculptures created by students from more than 20 area schools and homeschools. SVAC gratefully acknowledges the teaching, curating and logistical work of the many wonderful art teachers who contribute their time and care to these exhibitions.
