Third Thursday: sixth grade virtual art gallery - opening Reception
April 18
5:00 - 8:00 p.m.

To celebrate Youth Art Month, which takes place during the month of March, the elementary art department of Hutchinson Public Schools recognizes the sixth graders in our schools, by creating a virtual art gallery with the technology department in our district.  Each student has one featured piece in the gallery that anyone may vote for using our star rating system.  The students who receive the most stars are the winners of the contest, and we hold a reception for them.  We also take them on a field trip to the Wichita Art Museum in May.  We are grateful for all the support we receive from our school district and the community of Hutchinson!
