ArtQuest Exhibit

Friday, May 2nd 2014 - 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm at CitySpace
100 5th Street NE

Piedmont Council for the Arts (PCA) is excited to present ArtQuest, an exhibit in the CitySpace Gallery. A program of Charlottesville City Schools, ArtQuest serves fifth through twelfth grade students identified as gifted or talented in the visual arts.

There will be a First Fridays opening reception from 5:30-7:00pm on Friday, May 2 with light refreshments at CitySpace (located at 100 5th NE on the Downtown Mall). This event is FREE and open to the public.

ArtQuest students participate in a range of differentiated learning experiences during regularly scheduled art classes and weekly opportunities in after-school art classes. Exposure to a variety of activities in the arts allows students to discover and deepen their interests, develop their abilities, and demonstrate their gifts. These include a variety of short courses taught by artists in the community and art teachers in the school division. Each semester, students receive a list of after-school seminars and they register for sessions that are of interest and that fit their after-school schedules.

For more information about the ArtQuest program or the exhibit please contact Aaron Eichorst, Coordinator of Fine & Performing Arts for Charlottesville City Schools, at aaron.eichorst@charlottesvilleschools.org or 434 245 2671.

The exhibit will remain on display through Friday, May 30. There will also be an exhibit by local artist Michele Regine on display inside the PCA office within CitySpace.
