It’s time again for the Art Show at the Pima County Fair! Student artists from schools all over the county show their artwork to the entire regional community.
Our school participates every year with hundreds of entries from students in kindergarten through eighth grade, and every student wins a ribbon!
All kindergarten and first grade students will have art entered in the Fair. Beginning in second grade, Art teachers Mrs. Paradis and Mrs. Phelps have become more selective with choosing artwork to be entered in the fair.
Every year, the Art teachers explain how they choose the artwork to be entered for students from second grade and up. Rather than focus solely on talent, the Art teachers emphasize following the guidelines of each project and making a great effort.
As an 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 artwork are chosen. Finally, students must label their art with their name and age.
This year the fair opens April 17th and closes April 27th. Many thanks to the students, teachers and parents who help Mrs. Paradis and Mrs. Phelps make our school’s Pima County Fair Art Show so spectacular!
