Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery is honored to turn its front gallery over to The Palm Beach County Art Teachers’ Association, starting with the Art Teachers of Lake Worth High School. At the end of each school year, CGMSGallery features the hard-working artists of Lake Worth High School. This year, the gallery has set an entire month aside to honor all of the public school art teachers in the county. The exhibit takes place at Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery, 15 South J Street in Downtown Lake Worth. Each week there will be a wine, cheese and dessert reception, and each Friday a different group of teaching artists will be featured. Parking and the exhibition are free. Children are welcome.
Friday, May 18, Brent Bludworth and Jennifer Love Gironda both art teachers at Lake Worth High School, will be featured. The opening begins at 6 PM and continues until 9. Their works will fill the entire front of the gallery.
Friday, May 25, the gallery switches gears as the PBCAT (Palm Beach County Art Teachers’ Association) fills the gallery with their own works. Featured on this Friday will be the works of High School Art Teachers. Friday, June 1, Middle School Teacher take the spotlight, and on Friday, June 8, the elementary school teachers step up. Every Friday will be a celebration of teachers and the arts. Please come and join in.
Schools all over the country have chosen to cut the arts out of the lives of our children. Art teachers in public schools are often a casualty of this “economy.” Palm Beach County Public Schools are fortunate in being wealthy in the numbers and dedication of teachers in our schools who celebrate the arts and bring the joy of creation, color and form to our children. Culture builds communities and the arts enhance the educational opportunities our children have access to. Children do not learn linearly. Some children learn to read when music is added to the curriculum. Some do better in math when painting is added. Some understand science better when confronted with sculptural ratios. Some relieve their daily stress by creating beauty with which to surround themselves and their families. Art, as an outlet for what ails you, is a gift to society. Here are the teachers who love our children and who give them this gift.
