Norfolk Public, Parochial & Home School Student and Faculty Show

March is National Arts Education Month. To celebrate, each year the Norfolk Arts Center welcomes Norfolk Public, parochial and home school students to display their work for the enjoyment of the entire community. Families and friends come back year after year to proudly view their budding artist’s accomplishments. New this year is the extension of the shows duration. The NAC strives to represent all practicing young artists in the area. For more information on this exhibition and ways to participate, please contact NAC.

In addition, continuing to build from last year, faculty artwork will also be on display. Participating art teachers are encouraged to bring their own work, in addition to their students’ artwork, and demonstrate their accomplishments to the next generation of artists.
