The 2018 VSA Kentucky Student Traveling Exhibition, “A Matter of Perspective,” has begun its tour and is available free of charge to schools, museums and other institutions.
The exhibit consists of 31 artworks from 20 schools. Subjects include trucks, animals, landscapes, still lifes and designs with styles ranging from realistic to abstract. Students expressed themselves using a variety of artistic media; acrylics, watercolor, pencil, colored pencil, crayons, markers and mixed media. Exploring various techniques and processes, these young artists produced imaginative works of art using collage, drawing, painting and printing.
VSA Kentucky invites teachers and parents to submit student work each October, and selected artworks are matted and prepared to travel. The exhibit comes with a packet of educational activities that help engage students in the exhibit. The exhibition program uses the visual arts as an educational tool, as well as a vehicle for artistic expression for children and youth with disabilities.
