Portage Township Schools Art Department annual Elementary Art Show

Apr 02 09:00 AM - 09:00 PM

Portage Library - Portage



The Portage Township Schools’ Elementary Art Department is pleased to present its annual Portage Elementary Art Show. The exhibition will run from April 2 through April 30 and can be visited at the Portage Public Library in the Youth Services department from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturday, and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Sunday.

This exhibit is a staple of the year, as it displays the remarkable accomplishments of approximately 320 Portage elementary artists ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade.

Throughout the year, the students have been learning about various cultures and artists throughout time and exploring the connections between art and other academics through media such as drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture and more.

The department strives to develop each student's engagement, knowledge, and creative skills necessary to learn, create, and work in a rapidly changing society. The educators responsible for putting this show together include Amanda Sheffer,

Bridget Nadolski, Marilynn Pester, Maria Verduzco, Andrew Cox, and Roxanne Witherspoon. All PTS elementary schools, which includes Kyle, Aylesworth, Myers, Crisman, South Haven, Paul Saylor, and Jones Elementary, are represented in this show.

Generous support for the 2019 Portage Township Schools Art Show is provided by the PTS administration and faculty, the Portage Public Library, Strack and Van Til, and Portage Tri Kappa.
