PBCATA Annual Members Juried Exhibitions
We as artists and art educators have a wonderful opportunity to create something very special. Let’s use this exhibit to reach out to the community. Think of ways to strengthen art education networks, to communicate about educational policy, to include teachers, artist, parents community member, museum educators, school board members. These exhibits are a great springboard for viable communication between art educators and their community.
