Beyond the Classroom

Beyond the Classroom showcases the talents of area K-12 teachers through artworks they have created outside the classroom. These artworks, which range in material, technique and style, show us how impactful it can be for teachers to be practicing artists themselves. Through the process of art-making, these teachers become even greater role models for their students as they demonstrate first-hand the power of imagination and creativity. President Barack Obama stated: “The future belongs to young people with an education and the imagination to create.” It is the teachers represented in this exhibition that provide young people with tools for the future—creativity, problem solving skills, imagination,and much more. We congratulate and thank our teacher artists of Beyond the Classroom, and hope that by viewing their achievements, you are inspired to welcome more creativity into your life.

This exhibtion is on view June 8-September 1, 2013
