The Plainville school district’s Fine Arts Department is sponsoring an art show to honor the creative achievements of students in kindergarten through Grade 12. After a pause during the COVID pandemic, the Plainville Public Library has once again generously provided exhibition space throughout the building for the students’ artwork displays. The exhibit opened May 6 and will run through May 24.
“It is wonderful to see this tradition return to celebrate the creative achievements of our students,” Fine Arts Instructional Leader Todd Helming said. “We have amazing student artists in the Plainville Community Schools, many of whom are highlighted as part of this art show. We encourage everyone in the community to come, stop by, and visit the show and enjoy this wonderful event!”
The art show is open to the public during regular library hours, Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“We are truly fortunate to receive such incredible support for the arts in Plainville, as this is not the case in all communities,” Superintendent of Schools Steven LePage said. “This commitment becomes most evident through the culminating school events, such as our musical concerts and this town-wide art show. These events highlight Plainville’s excellence in arts education and student success. I am grateful to our dedicated art teachers, and commend our incredibly talented students for such amazing artistic creations.”
