Can You Help Us Hang Art at the Pima County Fair?


Would you like to help us hang art at the Pima County Fair?  This year Tucson Country Day School will be displaying artwork from students in preschool through eighth grade.

On Saturday, April 8th – beginning at 10am – we will be hanging art at the fairgrounds.  Please contact Art teacher Mrs. Phelps at if you have questions and if you can help.  A huge thank you goes out from Mrs. Phelps and Mrs. Paradis!

What’s this about my student’s artwork at the Pima County Fair?

Here’s a note from Art teachers Mrs. Paradis and Mrs. Phelps:

It’s time again for the Art Show at the Pima County Fair! Student artists from schools all over the county show their artworks to the entire regional community. We participate every year with hundreds of entries from preschool to eighth grade, and every student wins a ribbon!

Every year, we explain how we choose the artwork that goes to the fair to the students. We don’t focus on talent; rather we emphasize following the guidelines of each project and making a great effort. For example, a very talented student may waste time socializing and hand in a late project. That artwork would not qualify. Also, only finished and clean artworks are chosen. Finally, students must label their art with their name and age.

This year the fair opens April 20th and closes April 30th. Many, many thanks to the students, teachers and parents who help us (Mrs. Paradis and Mrs. Phelps) make our Pima County Fair Art Show so spectacular!

We look forward to seeing you at the fair!
