WFCA is seeking original works for our upcoming Rhode Island Art Educator’s Showcase, an exhibition featuring artwork from those individuals who teach art to others. The show will run from Saturday, September 11 -Saturday, October 9, 2021. Art teachers have the unique gift of merging the intricacies of mathematics,the lyricism of language, and the lessons of history to create a new form of visual communication. This show celebrates those educators who teach art to others. This show is open to all art educators in Rhode Island, including PreK-12; college/university and adult art education. The show will be juried by Anita Thompson and Jill Cyr.
